Locomotive Hire

Electric Traction Ltd has its own fleet of 25kV AC electric locomotives available for either main-line use or as static train supply machines.

The first of our fleet, loco 86101, has been in service for more than 5 years, and operated with 100% reliability for Hull Trains on a 110mph passenger diagram. It then spent several years on hire to First GBRf for mail train standby duties, along with another 110mph locomotive, 87002, which joined the fleet in 2008. Two further class 86/7 locomotives, also rated to 110mph, joined the fleet in 2009, with additional locomotives identified for future additions.
