built by ALSTOM & GENERAL MOTORS EMD
Class 67 diesel-electric locomotives were built in 1999-2000 by Alstom at Valencia, Spain as sub-contractors for General Motors.
These Class 67 Diesel-Electric Bo-Bo locomotives have a maximum tractive effort of 31770 lbf/141 kN, and Class 67 locos have a max. speed of 125 mph. Class 67 diesel locomotives are powered by a two stroke engine of 2385 kW (3200 hp).
Class 67 are often stabled on the East Coast Mainline from London to Edinburgh at Kings Cross, Doncaster and Newcastle as relief locomotives in case of train breakdown, a task which has earned them the nickname 'Thunderbirds'! Class 67 diesel-electric locomotives are mainly used to haul passenger trains but may sometimes be used on lighter freight trains.
