The Anonymous Widower

The Ultimate Bi-Mode

This picture shows, what could be an experiment by Freightliner at Shenfield.


Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to ask the driver, if the Class 66 locomotive was running dead-in-train or helping the Class 90 locomotive with a very heavy load.

The picture shows, that the electric and diesel locomotives can work together, at the front of a train.


The Class 66 locomotive has a power of 1,850 kW and the Class 90 locomotive has 3,730 kW.

Did the Class 66 locomotive pull the train out of Felixstowe?

Since I took this picture, I’ve never seen a similar pairing again.
