Built at Brush Traction, Loughborough in April 1991, then just 2 months old, 60051 sits in the down bay platforms at Reading. Now a DB Schenker loco in EWS livery, I believe this loco is in store at Toton TMD.

Some Class 60 locos were named after prominent scientists and engineers. Named when built after Mary Somerville 1780 - 1872, a famous mathematician for whom Oxford's Somerville College is named.

Delivered from Brush Traction, Loughborough in June 1991; here 60041 is hauling a down ECC block train of PGAs, sporting the Trainload Freight Construction sector decals. This loco was withdrawn at the end of October 2013.

A theme with some Class 60s was to be named after famous British landscape features; High Willhays is the summit of Dartmoor near Okehampton.
