It has been reported that Rail Operations Group is in talks with Beacon Rail and Stadler over the delivery of new locomotives based on the UK DUAL design. Instead of the bi-mode version, which was delivered in a quantity of 10 locos to DRS as Class 88, it would now concern a tri-mode version. In addition to 25kV overhead power and a diesel engine, the new Class 93 is to include batteries as a third power source. Although preliminary livery designs have surfaced on the web, it has been stated that negotations are still ongoing and no deal has been finalized yet.
