The Class 67 locomotives are a class of Bo-Bo diesel-electric locomotives which were built for the English Welsh & Scottish Railway (EWS) between 1999 and 2000 by Alstom at Meinfesa in Valencia, Spain with drive components (engine, generator and traction motors) from General Motors' Electro-Motive Division.
They were built in a joint venture between Alstom in Valencia and General Motors Diesel who supplied the main drivetrain. Thirty locomotives were ordered as Class 47 replacements for use on high speed mail and passenger trains. After several modifications, the Class 67 was passed for 125mph running in June 2003.
After the termination of the Royal Mail/EWS contract in 2003, the locomotives passed on to other operators including First Scotrail and Wrexham & Shropshire who then, after the operatorís closure, passed them on to Chiltern Railways. Two Class 67s were used for the prestigious Royal Trains, Queens Messenger and Royal Sovereign. Other special liveries included a red livery with white maple leaf in honour of the former EWS and DB Schenker UK Chairman Keith Heller.
