Between December 2008 and April 2010, the SNCF subsidiary "SNCF Fret Benelux" active for a short time in international freight service initially leased three class 66 locomotives with the road numbers 6601-6603 from "CBRail Leasing" at that time. Road numbers 6604-6606 were occasionally added to the roster. These units were used in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and Germany mostly pulling container, tank car, and other unit trains. All of this only lasted a short time, because the foreign business for SNCF Fret Benelux went in the spring of 2010 into the newly established "CapTrain", in which several railroad companies were merged.
