Rail (UK) - - News - JOHN STRETTON.

Six years af­ter with­drawal, 86901 stands in Freight­liner’s Crewe Bas­ford Hall Yard on Oc­to­ber 7. The Class 86/9 has been ac­quired by the freight op­er­a­tor to do­nate parts to its own Class 86/6 fleet, which dates from 1965-66. The ‘86/9’ was con­verted from 86253 in 2006 for use as a mo­bile land bank, but these du­ties ended in 2010. The lo­co­mo­tive had been moved to CF Booth’s scrapyard in Rotherham be­fore be­ing roaded to Crewe.
