DB Cargo ‘60s’ offered for sale
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.
