‘68s’ to continue Anglian service
Class 68s will continue on hire to Greater Anglia until the end of May.
GA hires two ‘68s’ from Direct Rail Services to top and tail a rake of three Mk 2fs supplied by Riviera Trains.
These are to cover for 170204, which remains out of traffic undergoing collision repairs following the Hockham Road accident in April 2016.
As of March 20, the ‘68s’ in use were 68003 Astute and 68019 Brutus.
