Whitemoor open day in 2004     

GB Railfreight class 66 701 being re-named

GB Railfreight class 66 701 was re-named "WHITEMOOR" at the opening of the new Network's Rails Distribution Centre on a Sunday in June 2004 This new yard is now on part of what was the Old Whitemoor Yard at March

The name of this class 66 was"Railtrack National Logistics" it was changed after Railtrack had been put into administration.

The class 66 was named Whitemoor by the March town mayor and the head of GBRf who will be runing the yard .

In his speech the man from Network Rail said how pleased they were with the way the yard had been made so quickly, even though the fen soil had turned into mud in the heavy rain during the winter.

He also hoped that the children would not trespass, and that the people of March would forgive the noise of the construction and get on well with Network rail.

He also said that they had though a few people might turn up on the day, not the hundreds that did to the event.
