This blog is focussed around my interests in Diesel and Electric locomotives and the modern rail freight scene. I particularly like the humble Class 08 and 09 Shunter and also anything with a pantograph, notably Class 86, 90 and 92 locomotives.

Beacon Blue on Biomass


60026 'Helvellyn' passing Winwick this afternoon at head of the 6E10 12:03 Liverpool Biomass Terminal to Drax AES service. The locomotive operated by GBRf is owned by Beacon Rail and it's livery is based on it's owners dark blue with both Beacon and GBRf logos. The locomotive had reentered traffic in late 2021 after being out of use for over a year, due to fire damage suffered whilst working on the same circuit in 2020.
