The Class 68 was developed by DRS to provide a high-speed freight and passenger solution to today’s demand for low emissions and efficient transportation. The locomotive offers excellent fuel economy and low emissions. The locomotive has also the necessary electrical installation to provide heating and lighting for passenger services. These locomotives are now popular performers throughout much of the UK rail network.
