Introduction & Background


During the 30 year history of the class 90s many charters, railtours, excursions, footex’s and other private trains have been run with new routes and lines being explored often for the first time and in some cases never been repeated. For example, Pathfinder ran a railtour on the 11th September 1999 involving 90150 from Warrington Bank Quay to Birmingham International.

90035 heads north on the ECML with UKR charter train 1Z90 in May 2010

The most recent line to be explored by the fleet came in April 2018, when 90046 visited the newly electrified Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh line.
