Home 2018-03-11 - [GB] Velim test ring soon to welcome TPE Class 68s

Hired from Europhoenix, Rail Operations Group oldie 37608 passes Lichfield Trent Valley Station with TPE-liveried 68019 and 68021 in tow on 9 March 2018. Picture by Jack Meakin-Sawyer.


On March 6, Class 68 locos 68019 and 68021 were brought to the Dollands Moor Yard on the British side of the Channel Tunnel by the Rail Operations Group. Although further transfer through the tunnel did not go through (with the locos returning to the DRS depot at Crewe on the 9th), it shows that tests together with CAF Mark 5a stock at the Velim test ring are planned for the near future.
