Home GM / EMD / Progress Rail JT26CW-SS / Class 59 Freightliner [GB] Celebrating 30 years of Class 59s in the UK [Updated]

To celebrate the Class 59's 30st anniversary, a special rail tour was organized by Pathfinder Tours visiting the Whatley Quarry owned by Hanson plc and the Merehead Quarry of Aggregate Industries. Traction for the tour was provided by Aggregate Industries 59001, 59002 and DB Schenker Rail UK 59202.

David Moreton, who made these pictures, also sent us some older pictures of Class 59 locos in ARC and National Power liveries:
