The British Rail Class 93 is a tri-mode locomotive to be built by Stadler Rail in Valencia. They will be an evolution of the Class 88 bi-mode locomotives which were built by Stadler for Direct Rail Services.

Ten Class 93s have been ordered by Rail Operations Group (ROG), with the first scheduled for delivery in August 2020.[1]


The locomotives will be capable of running on diesel engines, overhead wires and battery power. They will have a top speed of 110 mph (180 km/h)[2] and have around 1,800 hp (1,300 kW) of usable power when running on diesel.[1]
