Passenger Services


DB class 90s finished working passenger services for Greater Anglia in October 2016. However, as a result of a backlog of maintenance, DB90s can now be found working services on the East Coast Mainline for Virgin Trains on MK4s, which are being used on ad-hoc basis until further notice.

Other Operators & Information


As well as working passenger trains for Virgin Trains 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 .

The DB Cargo class 90s are diagrammed to work 4M25 and 4S47 between Mossend-Daventry-Mossend as a pair of 90s assuming their available for traffic. In addition, 6X65, 6V15, 6M76, 6G74, and 6X52 are also often a DB 90 too, but they can be formed of other traction types.
