Fifty (50) class 58 Co-Co diesel electric locomotives, designed for heavy freight duties, were introduced in 1983. The locomotives were built at the BREL Workshops at Doncaster and from new they were painted in grey Railfreight Sector livery. They were withdrawn from service in 2002 and many were subsequently hired abroad.
