2014-01-24 - [GB] The curious case of the Class 68 works numbers

Home News Archive 2014-01-24 - [GB] The curious case of the Class 68 works numbers

We've been getting some reports that Beacon Rail/DRS68002 carries works number 2680 and nt Beacon Rail/DRS68001. However, it appears both units have plates stating 2680/2013. We find that quite confusing to be honest. Our guess is that 68001 is actually Vossloh 2679, as the Beacon Rail/VFLI EURO 4000 order (E4017-E4022) runs from 2673 to 2678.
