In October, DB Cargo UK announced that it would launch a restructuring programme aimed at making the operator more competitive in a rapidly changing market. Besides 893 planned job cuts and a reduction of the number of operational sites, a rationalization of the company's wagon and locomotive fleet was announced.
Even though the company has been selling locomotives before, such as 10x Class 60 to Colas Rail and numerous Class 08 shunters, the first signs of DB Cargo UK's fleet rationalization are now starting to show. Two out of a fleet of thirty Class 67 locomotives have been made available for sale: 67023 and 67027. DB Cargo states that the "locomotives are offered for sale by means of competitive open tender...". More information can be found here: link.
