Stored Engines

Updated 25/7/21

There are several class 90s in store as mentioned above and these can all be found at Crewe - If you require further details including reasons and associated store date, then click here.


The total number of loco’s in long-term tore equates to 14 of which 13 of these are owned outright by DB Cargo (the remaining engine i.e. 90050 is now owned by Freightliner). The earliest sample to have been stored was 90025 back on the 20th January 2004 and has been categorised as being a shopping decision (whatever that means!) - it is unclear if she will ever return to traffic. The loco’s in long-term store have been summarised below:


90017, 90022, 90023, 90025, 90027, 90030, 90031, 90032, 90033, 90038, & 90050.


It is unclear if any of the above will ever return to traffic -  It has been suggested that most of those stored at Crewe are in reasonably good condition despite being left out in the open for many years. Finally, In November 2014, 90050 was purchased by Freightliner and she is currently being used as a donor for other active fleet members in Basford Hall yard.


There was nothing else to report at the time of writing other than to say a handful of DB Cargo 90s continue to be stopped at Crewe IEMD. This includes 90018, 90021, and 90040 to name but a few.


What is the current situation?


There are 50 class 90s and I am pleased to report that their were 36 operational engines each split between Freightliner, DB Cargo and Locomotive Services Ltd (see below for more information).  There are 14 class 90s in store of which 13 of these are owned by DB Cargo and can be found at Crewe IEMD. The other loco (90050) was brought by Freightliner in December 2014 and is currently at Basford Hall Yard where she is donating parts.


Which 90s are out of traffic?
