First GBRf names loco for National Railway Museum


First GBRf named a Class 66 locomotive No 66727, Andrew Scott C.B.E, for the National Railway Museum (NRM) at a ceremony on Thursday 22 October, 2009. 
The naming ceremony took place in the National Railway Museum’s Great Hall and was attended by over 300 senior railway industry figures. 
Ed Bartholomew, acting head of knowledge and collections at the museum said: “Andrew Scott was truly taken by surprise as he helped with the unveiling of the new nameplates on First GBRf Class 66 locomotive No 66727 to find out it was named Andrew Scott CBE.  Having seen many engine namings over his 15-year career as director of the NRM, Andrew said that he had not thought to ask what the name of the locomotive was going to be.  Everyone at the NRM is very proud of Andrew’s achievements and it’s fantastic to see him recognised in this way.” 
Andrew will be staying on as acting director of the NRM’s parent organisation, the National Museum of Science and Industry until the summer of 2010. 
Neil Crossland, commercial director, First GBRf, says: “The National Railway Museum is a quintessential part of British rail heritage. It was an honour for GBRf to name a loco after someone who has been so dedicated to this establishment.”
