More information:

DRS has a uniquely flexible and efficient fleet of locomotives and rolling stock. Our fleet of Class 68, 66, 57, 37 and 20 locomotives offer unbridled flexibility allowing us to deliver freight services across the network and support both Network Rail and the Train Operating Companies to keep their services running. 2017 saw the introduction of our new Class 88 locomotive, jointly developed with Stadler in Valencia, Spain. This mixed traffic locomotive offers a wide range of performance advantages to our clients as well as delivering the highest standards of efficiency and emissions in the industry. As part of our drive for technical innovation, DRS has developed a fleet of IDA ‘Super’ Lowliner twin platforms. Offering an ultra-low platform height, these deliver 3 key advantages: Reduced CO2 and increased fuel efficiency More containers for any given train length Increased network access and the ability to carry higher height ISO containers across the network All these factors make DRS the first choice for the UK’s intermodal transport specialists, including John G Russell Group and Stobart Group. The British Rail Class 90 electric locomotives were built by British Rail Engineering Limited at Crewe Works in 1987-1990, weighing 84.5 tonnes and with a top speed of 110 mph (177 km/h). They operate from 25 kV AC overhead lines and produce 5,000 bhp (3,700 kW). The class is employed on heavy freight trains.
