| Description

2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the formation of one of the United Kingdom’s most distinctive Railway Operating Companies, English Welsh & Scottish Railway Ltd, or EWS as it was more commonly known. The merger of Rail Express Systems, Loadhaul, Mainline Freight and Transrail Freight into North and South Railways during March 1996 was followed, on April 25th, by the unveiling of the EWS brand, but it was not until October 1996 that the English Welsh & Scottish Railway Ltd was formed.

On December 24, 1996, EWS was announced as the preferred bidder for the loss-making Railfreight Distribution, a deal concluded on March 12, 1997. At that point EWS controlled 90% of the United Kingdom's railfreight market and by 2006 the company's turnover was approaching £1 billion, with the UK market share standing at around 70%. On June 28, 2007, Deutsche Bahn announced it had agreed to purchase EWS, subject to receiving regulatory approval and the sale was completed on November 13, 2007. Despite assurances to the contrary, on January 1, 2009 EWS was rebranded as DB Schenker, their corporate red livery displacing the highly distinctive EWS maroon and yellow livery.

 Train pack includes:

  • - EWS Class 67 ‘67003’ in maroon and gold livery
  • - MHA wagon numbered ‘394652’
  • - MHA wagon numbered ‘394653’
  • - MHA wagon numbered ‘394654'


More EWS locomotives and wagons can be seen on our English, Welsh & Scottish Railway page

EWS class 67

At this price the most overpriced item from Hornby, hands down. However as the other review says get it discounted and it is a bargain. A really great engine with flawless operation.

EWS Bargain

I already have a couple of Hornby class 67 locos in Royal train & Caledonian sleeper liveries and have been very pleased with their quiet & smooth running. I was lucky enough to get this train pack from a well known supplier in the North West who was offering it at a greatly marked down price so very pleased.to add this to my collection. Loco has excellent pulling power and features forward and reverse lighting. Hoping to purchase the TTS sound decoders when available to enhance my models further.
