The Class 92 (or CC 92000 when operated by SNCF) is a British dual-voltage electric locomotive designed specifically to operate services through the Channel Tunnel between France and Britain, and is a common sight along the West Coast Main Line.
Forty-six locomotives were built by a consortium of Brush Traction and ABB Traction, entering service between 1993 and 1996. The bodyshells, shared with the Class 60 diesel locomotives but with a modified front end, were delivered in the then standard British Rail two-tone grey. The grey circles on the side reflect the locomotive's connection to the Channel Tunnel.
The locomotive is dual-voltage capable with the ability to run either on 25 KV AC overhead or 750V DC third rail, a common form of electrification in South East England. It can run up to 87 mph (140 km/h).
The majority of the class are named after European composers and writers. Post-privatisation the ownership was split between EWS, European Passenger Services (Eurostar (UK) and SNCF, the French state operated railway company. Currently they are operated by DB Schenker and GBRF/Europorte 2.
The class is also notable in that the last train ever to travel under British Rail, the 2315 service from Dollands Moor to Wembley on 21 November 1997, was hauled by 92003 Beethoven
