DB Cargo ‘60s’ of­fered for sale

Rail (UK) - - News -

DB Cargo has put three Class 60s up for sale.

The lo­co­mo­tives (60004/014/ 018) are stored at To­ton. They have all been out of traf­fic for at least nine years, hav­ing been stored by DB Schenker in Novem­ber 2009, De­cem­ber 2008 and May 2009 re­spec­tively.

DB owns 90 of the 100 Class 60s, and has put these three up for sale be­fore - al­beit with no suc­cess. The ten it did sell to Co­las Rail­freight have since been ac­quired by GB Rail­freight (which then agreed a sale and lease­back with Bea­con Rail for the lo­co­mo­tives).

GBRf has pre­vi­ously ex­pressed an in­ter­est in buy­ing suit­able and avail­able lo­co­mo­tives.
