55022 Royal Scots Grey and D9016 Gordon Highlander are owned by Locomotive Diesels Ltd, a division of Locomotive Services Ltd.
In November 2017 55 022 and D9016 joined a fleet which also includes steam locomotives such as ‘Royal Scot’, ‘Blue Peter’ and ‘Britannia’
As part of our new role as a Train Operating Company within the UK we have a growing number of diesel locomotives – in the care of Locomotive Diesels Ltd – to supplement our fleet of iconic steam locomotives when we operate on the main line.
For journeys that are sadly too long and impractical for steam locomotives in the 21st century, we can make use of our fleet of Class 47 and now Deltic locomotives.
Moreover we are pleased to confirm that the previous owners of these fantastic locomotives will be remaining with them, to work alongside our teams to restore and maintain them in the best possible condition for running on the mainline.
