Description

Resulting from an order for four locomotives by Yeoman Aggregates, the Class 59 locomotives were built and introduced over a ten year period from 1985. In 1997 one of the Foster Yeoman locomotives, 59003 Yeoman Highlander, was exported to Germany to haul stone trains and in 2001 was sold to Heavy Haul Power International, then purchased by GB Railfreight in August 2014. It returned to Great Britain in October 2014 for recommissioning into GBRf service.
