Rather surprisingly there remain a small number of heritage locomotives in use on the British national rail network. Some are operated by private or spot-hire rail operators whilst others have been reconditioned for export to Europe.
The Class 57 diesel locomotives were introduced by Brush Traction between 1997-2004. They are rebuilds of former Class 47 locomotives fitted with a refurbished EMD engine and reconditioned alternator.
