Freightliner 66587 Receives New Pink Livery

Freightliner today announced a new livery for its class 66 locomotive number 66587. The naming ceremony took place at Southampton Docks today (Monday 10th June 2019).

Freightliner 66587 was named “AS ONE WE CAN”, in OceanNetworkExp magenta livery following Freightliner’s partnership with ONE. ONE (OceanNetworkExpress) is a new global container shipping company.

66587 is the latest Freightliner class 66 locomotive to receive a new livery, as Freightliner steadily turn from green to their new black and orange livery having been aquired by Genesee & Wyoming.

Here’s another Twitter tweet showing off the full livery:

As it stands, locomotives in the new Freightliner liveries are (as of Monday 10th June 2019):

  • 66587 (ONE Magenta Livery)
  • 66413 (G&W)
  • 66415 (G&W)
  • 66419 (G&W)
  • 66623 (G&W)

Repaints are carried out at Eastleigh Works.

Where can I find pink shed 66587?

You can check recent sightings of 66587 on Rail Record. The recent workings are shown at the bottom. Be sure to check the date column. We’ll try and update it as much as possible over the coming days.

I was interested to see this naming as I love the Class 66 and have always liked 66 587 as I was PC 587 in an earlier life in the South Yorkshire Police and the naming took place on my 71st birthday. Painting it pink must be showing my feminine side.
Best wishes

Did 66587 come through Salisbury today or was I imagining it? I usually watch the freightliner passing by my garden at about 10.10am in a sober livery of green and was amazed to see a “Thomas” style pink freight in charge this morning. Lovely sight!

It went near Salisbury, but not through it. It went from Southampton to Romsey and then towards Andover.
Just after 10am, so it was definately in the area 🙂
