Routes Featuring the Class 86

West Coast Main Line (WCML)


The Class 86 was built at the end of the steam era to operate on the then newly-electrified West Coast Main Line, and formed part of the effort replace steam locomotives by 1968.


Throughout the 1970’s the Class 86 was used on express passenger services as well as freight but with the demand for electric locomotives increasing, by the 1980’s the need for a standard fleet saw all the Class 86’s fitted with improved suspension giving them greater operational flexibility.


In the late 1980’s to early 1990’s the majority of Class 86/4’s were dedicated to freight activity and the majority of Class 86’s are now owned by Freightliner.


The following Scenarios are Packaged with the WCML-N Expansion that includes a Class 86 Engine.
