History

The British Rail Class 60 is Co-Co heavy freight diesel-electric locomotive type built by Brush Traction. The 100-strong class are nicknamed Tugs by some rail enthusiasts. The class was the last to be constructed in the UK for domestic main line use, this and the network wide deployment of the locos is partly the reason for their immense popularity with rail fans.

They command a fanatical following, many of their daily workings are discussed and photographed, and they are seeing something of a renaissance with long-stored examples being restored to service with new operators, wearing new liveries; the well-liked Class 60 has much responsibility for sustaining enthusiast interest in the contemporary rail scene in the UK.
