Issue Cover

Railways Illustrated  |  Direct Rail Services: 25 Years of Rail Haulage  


Direct Rail Services (DRS) is celebrating 25 years of rail haulage in 2020. This 132-page special publication takes a photographic look back at the locos and traffics that have shaped DRS, from Type 1s pottering around Cumbria to today’s impressive Spanish acquisitions.

With a quarter century of operation under its belt, DRS is once again in transition with many of its ex-British Rail locomotives either gone or in their final years. However, the surprise hiring of additional Class 66s from DB Cargo in late 2019 shows the company still has an eye on the future with 2020 expected to bring expansion into new freight arenas such as automotive traffic.
