TPE Class 68 pressed into in­fra­struc­ture du­ties

Rail (UK) - - Fleet News - PAUL HILL.

Tran­sPen­nine Ex­press 68019 Bru­tus was used to haul the 1441 Bescot Up En­gi­neer’s Sid­ing-To­ton North Yard in­fra­struc­ture train on Au­gust 29. The ‘68s’ are sub-leased from Direct Rail Ser­vices, but are cur­rently only be­ing used for train­ing. DRS was able to use the ‘68’ at short no­tice. Once TPE starts its ‘68’ op­er­a­tion, work­ings such as this will be highly un­com­mon. The ‘68’ passes Rye­croft Junc­tion, near Wal­sall.
