Transporting Class 58 locomotives from the UK to Spain: May 2004
EWS (now DB-Schenker) required six Class 58 locomotives (at 130 ton each) to be exported from the UK to Spain. This involved transferring the locomotives onto a heavy lift ship in the UK and offloading onto road transport in Spain for final movement onto their destination.
