Grand Cen­tral uses ‘67’ for Bank Hol­i­day duty

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

Grand Cen­tral hired a Class 67 and Mk 2 coaches from DB Cargo over the Au­gust Bank Hol­i­day week­end, to pro­vide ex­tra ca­pac­ity and cover dur­ing dis­rup­tion else­where on the net­work.

It says it hired the set in the ex­pec­ta­tion of un­usu­ally high load­ings on the East Coast Main Line, due to the clo­sure of Eus­ton sta­tion that week­end, en­gi­neer­ing work on the Mid­land Main Line, and sport­ing fix­tures.

GC’s Class 180 fleet was fully avail­able for the week­end, and the lo­co­mo­tive and coaches were also avail­able for use by other long-dis­tance op­er­a­tors.
