Class 88 arrival in the UK

Direct Rail Services’ Class 88002 locomotive is the first to arrive from Stadler, Valencia. Ten Class 88 locomotives have been ordered from Stadler Rail, in partnership with Beacon Rail Leasing Limited.

The locomotive will be commissioned by Stadler, followed by a UK testing programme which will last six to eight weeks. The remaining nine locomotives will arrive via the Port of Workington by mid-spring.

The Class 88 is a true “Dual Mode” locomotive combining both 25kv Electric and Diesel Electric operating modes. A further development of the Class 68 platform, the Class 88 is another technical innovation from Direct Rail Services, providing superior traction equipment for UK operation.
