advertisement

Groupe Eurotunnel recently announced it purchased five remaining Class 92 SNCF freight locomotives. The agency now has 16 Class 92 locomotives and 280 total motive power units in its fleet.

The additional locomotives will help the agency — which provides freight and passenger transportation services through the Channel Tunnel — accommodate increasing traffic. The dual-current locomotives are certified to haul freight both on the United Kingdom rail network and in the Channel Tunnel.
