The British Rail Class 90 is a dual-voltage electric locomotive which can run on 25 kV AC from overhead wires or 750 V DC from a third rail. It was designed specifically to operate services through the Channel Tunnel between Britain and France. Locomotives of this type are operated by GB Railfreight/Europorte 2 and DB Schenker.
In France, a number were also owned and operated by SNCF; these were classified as CC 92000 on French railways. The class 92 was intended as a mixed traffic locomotive for hauling both international freight trains.
Since introduction the fleet was exclusively allocated to freight, however, in March 2015 six locomotives owned by GB Railfreight have begun passenger operations hauling the Caledonian Sleeper on behalf of Serco, marking the very first use of the class in commercial passenger service.
