YEAR INFORMATION
2000 Two further running numbers are being added this year to the growing stable of Transrail Class 56s. Transrail was one of the private freight companies taken over by EWS in 1996. However, this did not mean that all the locomotives were immediately re-painted, many Transrail liveried 56s can still be seen hauling general freight as well as MGRs. Powered by a ringfield motor.
