Private Passenger Operators

Passenger trains and locomotives in the liveries of the private rail companies from 1995
The Class 08, 0-6-0 diesel electric shunter which was based on the prototype LMS designs, became British Railways largest fleet of locomotives. These locomotives were constructed between 1953 and 1962 at Crewe, Darlington, Derby and Doncaster.

The Class, which includes a number of Class 09 locomotives, has a single cab at the No.1 end and a front section that houses the power unit, generator and control equipment. Class 08 shunters are powered by an English Electric 350hp, 6KT engine and have a maximum speed of 15 – 20mph. The Class once numbered in excess of 1,000 with approximately 300 remaining in service today and still represents the mainstay of the UKs shunting power.

The standard Class 08 locomotives are in operation in most if not all areas of the UK and are expected to remain in service for many years to come. They are employed mainly as shunting units in marshalling yards and shunting depots but are also used occasionally for short trip workings. Built at the Derby Works and outshopped on the 9 September 1960, Class 08 822 was originally numbered D3990 but changed to its current number on the 31 December 1973.

The locomotive is currently based at St. Philips Marsh T&RSMD, Bristol and is one of nine that are operated by First Great Western.

A Eurostar cutting through the Kent countryside heading for the Continent at 300kph is a wonderful sight to behold yet for those on board the feeling of such speed is minimal. This year sees the familiar grey livery give way to the fresh and striking colours of the new Eurostar trains with their dynamic new paint work and new interiors. The Hornby model replicates this new livery both on the four car pack and the 'Divisible Coaches'.
