The first LNER Class 91s will be withdrawn from the end of July.
It has been speculated that 91108/120/132 will be the first three withdrawn, followed by 91103 in August, with the process then starting again at the end of January. The final two (91105/109) would go on June 30 2020.
LNER spokesman Peter Hess told RAIL: “A list was originally worked up based on mileage, but it has changed and will continue to change following faults and repairs picked up while the locomotives are in service. I can, however, confirm that the first ‘91s’ will be withdrawn in July.”
