Passenger Services


DB Cargo 90s can be found working passenger trains on the ECML for LNER due to a backlog of maintenance issues with the standard fleet, which is expected to remain in place until further notice. In addition, Greater Anglia has also hired a loco from DB for ETH purposes at Ilford.

Other Operators & Information


As well as working passenger trains for LNER and other selected freight trains on the WCML and ECML, DB 90s also find themselves working private charter trains in addition to performing the odd Royal Mail train when class 325s are suffering from poor reliability which involves the unit being dragged. Other duties include light engine movements between Crewe and Wembley .
