Locomotive number RA58 carrying spoil and rubble out of the Channel Tunnel, during its construction in 1993, by Chris Hogg. 20 pairs of these trains, pulled by electric locomotives, were used to carry spoil. The locomotives were built at the Hunslet company, in Leeds. One of the locomotives, RA36, later went on display at the National Railway Museum together with one of the spoil wagons.
