The British Rail Class 57 is a re-engineer locomotive, rebuilt by Brush Traction at Loughborough from redundant Class 47 locomotives between 1997-2004. Enthusiasts have nicknamed the locomotives ‘Bodysnatchers’ because the body of the Class 47 has been stripped, rewired and re-engined. They are fitted with a refurbished General Motors engine and a reconditioned alternator to improve reliability and performance. In 1997, Freightliner places an order for six Class 57/0 locomotives, with the first being released in 1998. 12 named locomotives were built, including Freightliner Bond, and finished in the company’s distinct green and yellow livery.
