British Rail Class 58 for Transport Fever.
Unlocks in 1983
This Co-Co diesel locomotive was designed for heavy freight, it’s design followed the American practice of modularisation.
Nicknamed the ‘Bone’ by enthusiasts, 50 of them were built for British Rail. After British Rail’s Railfreight Distribution was privatised, all of the Class 58s were passed on to EWS in 1996.
After just a couple of years, EWS began to withdraw the 58s from service and put them into storage, taking preference to newer locos like the Class 66. The last 58 was withdrawn by EWS in 2002.
Some of the class went for lease overseas, with many going to France and Spain.
As at the end of 2018, 3 remain stored in the UK, with 5 more in preservation. France still operates 3, with 20 stored. Spain still operates 8, with 4 in storage.
7 of the class have been scrapped.
