The Class 68 is a type of mainline mixed traffic diesel-electric locomotive manufactured by Stadler Rail (and previously by Vossloh Espa˝a) for Direct Rail Services in the United Kingdom. The design is derived from the Stadler Eurolight, and Stadler's product name for this variant is the UKLight.
The design meant that these locomotives able able to reach 100mph and due to the state of the art adhesion control system they have utilised the available traction power for both power and speed.
