A class of their own...?

Recently, Freightliner Group Ltd placed an order for 30 freight locomotives of a brand new design, giving even greater hauling capacity and a significant improvement in fuel economy than currently seen on the UK network. Project Genesis, which is being developed in partnership with General Electric (GE), will bring new technology to the UK rail freight market, enabling Freightliner to move longer and heavier trains whilst reducing CO2 emissions per tonne moved. The locomotive is currently undergoing development and will be ready for introduction into the UK during 2009.
