The Royal Train is based at Wolverton, the World’s oldest Railway Works which opened in 1838 and employs several hundred people today. The Works is a secure area and the Royal Train Shed is inside another secure compound inside the Works.

Changing the Liveries

The work to change the liveries Maroon and Yellow EWS livery into the new Diamond Jubilee variant was undertaken at DB Schenker’s Toton Paint Shop in the East Midlands.

The Royal Train

As with the Golden Jubilee a decade ago, The Royal Train will play a pivotal part in the transporting of the Royal family around the British Isles, from Inverness to Penzance and Fishguard to Lowestoft this year as the Queen, Prince of Wales and others conduct official visits to various towns and cities.

Diamond Jubilee Celebration

DB Schenker has dedicated a new locomotive for the Royal Train it operates in conjunction with the Diamond Jubilee celebration.

Two classmates, Nos.67005 and 67006 are well known for their dark claret livery, and are normally used with the Royal Train as their livery is a matching colour. The addition to the Royal fleet, No. 67026 is in a silver liver which includes a lengthy Union Jack, as well as a copy of the official Diamond Jubilee logo.
