DB offers 12 further out of-service Class 60s for sale

DB Cargo (DBC) has put a further 12 Class 60s up for sale, with a deadline of registrations to receive tender documents on January 20. 

The operator has previously sold 36 of the class, some of which are now operated by DC Rail and GB Railfreight.

If all 12 are bought, it will mean that DBC has sold 48 of the 100-strong class, all of which passed to the company via its EWS predecessor.

To be ‘sold as seen’, all 12 have been out of service for more than a decade. They are among 35 of the class currently stored in long lines in Toton yard.

An unspecified reserve price has been set by DBC, with the winners being the highest-value bids. None of those offered for sale have been refurbished.

    DB Cargo UK's powerful and dexterous Class 60 is a class of Co-Co heavy freight diesel-electric locomotives built by Brush Traction from 1989 to 1993. They are often nicknamed "Tugs" by rail enthusiasts with maritime manners. Dr. Güntürk Üstün

    Glad to see that DBC is intending to make more inroads into the lines of 'stored' 60s.
