[ April 6, 2022   //   ]

GB Railfreight unveiled a Class 66 locomotive named ‘Glory to Ukraine’ and painted in the country’s flag on 6 April. The rail operator said it “stands with Ukraine and this newly painted locomotive honours the people affected by the conflict as they continue to courageously defend their homeland”.

According to the Kyiv Independent website, 71 Ukraine railway employees have been killed since the full-scale war broke out in late February. The railways have played a key role in evacuating people from danger areas and getting aid and equipment into the affected regions.
