D B Cargo Red-liveried Class 66/0 No. 66136, featuring decals and the branding 'YIWU - LONDON TRAIN' approaches Colton Junction, working the 10:50 Knowsley Freight Terminal to Wilton Terminal Service, comprising loaded 'Binliner' hoppers, on a very misty, murky and damp 25th September 2017. Its 'YIWU - LONDON TRAIN' livery was the result of it having the honour to haul the final leg (from Ripple lane to Barking Freight Terminal) of the first working of a new freight service from China on 18th January 2017, when welcome banners were broken and the press were in attendance for the occasion. This new freight service had set out from China on 1st January 2017 and was trans-shipped en route, due to the different gauge in Russia."
