Class 90s brought in for Sleepers

GB Railfreight is leasing Class 90s from Freightliner to operate Serco’s Caledonian Sleepers, as the allocated Class 92s are in need of servicing. 

“Following a couple of recent failures, we have now decided to temporarily remove the Class 92s from front line service on the Caledonian Sleeper to enable GBRf and its maintenance partners to tackle the issues that have been causing concern”, said David Simpson, Serco production and safety director for the Caledonian Sleeper. 

Although Class 92s will not be used on the main line, they are still being used for empty Sleeper stock movements to and from depots.
