GBRf locomotive named in honour of
Captain Tom Moore



Freight operator GB Railfreight, has thanked Captain Tom Moore for his fundraising efforts for the NHS with a birthday surprise a Class 66 freight locomotive named in his honour.

The naming took place at Eastleigh to coincide with Captain Moore's 100th birthday (30 April). The nameplates were unveiled by GB Railfreight Managing Director John Smith, with Captain Moore watching the ceremony from home. GBRf had previously outshopped No. 66731 in a special 'Thank You NHS' livery and this locomotive was the obvious choice to be named in his honour.

Neil Booth, Director of Railwayana Auctions UK Ltd, came up with the idea of naming a locomotive in honour of Captain Tom.

Mr Booth said "Inspired by the fundraising efforts of Captain Tom, I thought that it would be a wonderful idea to honour him with his nameplate on a locomotive that travels the country so that lots of people could see it. Once we had Captain Tom's family's consent, Procast of Cleckheaton bent over backwards to cast the full size nameplates for the engine and the smaller presentation plate for the family in just seven days."

Neil delivered the third 'presentation plate' to Captain Moore's family the day before his birthday, alongside a gift presentation plate The Duke of Wellington's Regiment, Capt Tom's old regiment.

Fundraising for the NHS continues as Hornby has sought permission to use Neil's nameplate wording and announced a limited edition run of 500 models of the NHS 'Captain Tom' Class 66, with profits going direct to NHS charities.
