DRS' Class 88 locomotives are slowly making their debut on British rails, as they have been approved for general running on the network after a period of trials. Two of the locos, 88002 and 88003, have starred on rail tours and at special occasions. The former had its debut on the Northern Bell on 9 May, while the latter attended the Severn Valley Railway Spring Diesel Gala on 18-20 May.
