Direct Rail Services stores three locomotives

Three locomotives have been stored by Direct Rail Services.

A Class 37/5, a Class 47/8 and a Class 57/0 have all been removed, although it is likely that the latter will be returned to traffic.

On November 1, 37682, 47841 and 57007 were stored. RAIL understands that the Class 37 and 47 have been on the ‘hit list’ for some time - both are stored at Crewe Gresty Bridge. The Class 57 is at Arlington Fleet Services’ Eastleigh Works, where it is undergoing an overhaul.
