Freightliner inherited a large fleet of thirty Class 86/6 freight-dedicated locomotives, most of which had previously been operated by Railfreight Distribution, but some came from Rail Express Systems. The fleet consisted of locomotives in many different obsolete liveries so, from 1995, Freightliner started to apply its newly introduced livery. This was based on the previous Trainload two-tone grey, with the addition of Freightliner's red triangle logo.
In 1998, following the introduction of the rebuilt Class 57 diesel locomotives, Freightliner introduced a new livery of racing green with yellow cabsides. The first Class 86 to appear in this livery was no. 86631, which was hurriedly repainted for display at an open day at Toton. The majority of the fleet have slowly been treated over the years, such that by the end of 2004, only a handful remained in the original two-tone grey livery. Two locomotives (nos. 86622/637) were subsequently repainted in Freightliner Powerhaul Livery.
These are to be replaced in the by Class 90s, sent off lease by Greater Anglia, making it the end of regular use for the class after 55 years of service.
Gaugemaster are pleased to commemorate such sterling years of service by introducing these new items into their GM Collection range of commissions.
