DB Cargo UK hires second Class 90 to Virgin Trains East Coast

DB Cargo UK owns and operates the largest locomotive fleet in the UK and with its extensive resources has now loaned a second Class 90 locomotive to Virgin Trains East Coast (VTEC).

The locomotive will be on loan to VTEC for at least six months, operating on services from London King’s Cross to Newark North Gate, Leeds and York.

VTEC previously hired a Class 90 from DB Cargo UK in September 2016.

DB Cargo UK’s Class 90s are both on loan as VTEC continues to modify its fleet of Class 91 locomotives.

Richard Corser, Account Manager for Charters, Special Trains and Resource Hires, said:

“DB Cargo UK offers a range of services for Train Operating Companies such as on-board staff, drivers and of course the hire of locomotives.

“We are delighted to be able to provide our assistance to Virgin Trains East Coast through the loan of our Class 90s.”
