New Livery for Direct Rail Services Locos


A new era in Direct Rail Services’ identity

From the DRS website

The modernised identity for Direct Rail Services (DRS) has been created to give a slightly differentiated yet family resemblance with the Nuclear Transport Solutions (NTS) brand.

The design is an evolution of the existing identity and retains the primary colour and emphasis on directional focused movement.

DRS ordered Class 88 locos. They are true “Dual Mode” locomotives combining both 25kv Electric and Diesel Electric operating modes.
A class 88 is a further development of the Class 68 platform.

We’ve updated the DRS website and social media channels to reflect the new brand. Updating physical assets will be a more gradual process, and we’ll be doing this in the most cost-effective way possible.

We’re also developing options for our approach to changing the livery on our locos. Again, this won’t happen overnight and we want to do this in the most cost-effective way we can. We’re working on various options and will keep you all well informed of any changes.

DRS lease class 68 locos to Transpennine Express and Chiltern Railways
