Back when EMD of London ON was the primary plant of Electro-Motive's locomotive manufacturing, they built North American freight units as well as those for foreign railroads overseas. Fastline Freight 66303 is just one of an "Export Special" of 9 Class 66 units (EMD model JT42CWR-T1) sitting inside CN's Mimico Yard in Etobicoke awaiting export to the UK, France and The Netherlands. 66303 would be moved to the Toronto Port Authority, loaded up on the Jumboship MV Daniella, cross the Atlantic Ocean and be unloaded in Newport, UK later that month (*note, photo taken from entranceway on public property looking into yard).
