Locomotive Services – Train Operating Company

We are delighted to announce that as of yesterday, Friday 4th August, Locomotive Services (TOC) Ltd. has been granted a Train Operating License for the operation of excursion passenger trains on the United Kingdom mainline railway network.

Following a significant amount of hard work we have been awarded the necessary Safety Certificate, Access Agreement and Train Operating License required to operate services on the national rail network.

Furthermore, we are pleased to confirm that we have received a Network Rail Gauging Certificate for both Royal Scot and Braunton – currently masquerading as classmate Lord Dowding – to run from our Crewe operating base along the North Wales line towards Llandudno and south to Cardiff.

Watch this space for more news about when we’ll be operating the first of our own trains on the mainline railway network.
