66082 heads 6B36 07:32 Didcot Yard - Ashchurch MoD train north through Up Hatherley (Cheltenham) on 16/06/09. The train is formed of 7 KWA's (Carrying brand new army Mastiffs from the USA.) + 2 FCA's + 1 KFA + 8 VGA's. The Mastifss will be off loaded at Ashchurch before having additional work done on them in the UK which will take them out of the UK loading gauge. The Mastiffs could therefor only be photographed being carried by rail once, on delivery, as the additional armour is permanent a scene such as this could only ever be repeated if the MoD where to order more of the Mastiffs.
