DB Cargo has put ten of its Class 66s up for sale. Eight of them are already in store, with two still in the active fleet. As of August 5 all were at Toton and two (66016 and 66058) are in the latest DB red scheme. All are thought to have serious engine problems, including cracked cylinder blocks. Closing date for anyone interested in biding is August 21.
The ten are: 66008, 66016, 66046, 66058, 66081, 66132, 66141, 66184, 66238 and 66250. Of these 66141 has been stored since April 2014, while 66250 was the last to be delivered to former owner EWS.
