In 1999, the British railway company EWS ordered a total of 30 units of the diesel-electric type JT42HW-HS from the Spanish-American consortium Alstom Meinfesa/EMD, primarily to cover mail trains. The EMD twelve-cylinder two-stroke diesel engine 12N-710G3B-EC develops an output of 2386 kW. The four electric motors accelerate the four-axle vehicle to 177 km/h. After modification, one locomotive was approved for 201 km/h. The locomotives, which are equipped with electric train heating, are used in passenger and freight train services, for example at DB Cargo UK and GB Railfreight..

Different starting processes can be selected with F1: 1x press button = warm start / press button 2x = false start / press button 3x = cold start

F2 slows down the locomotive slowly.

F5 enables the heavy load mode: The diesel notch is always one up compared with normal operation. If you want to jump two notches, simply set CV 104 to 150 (instead of 130).

F8 turns on the manual ntoching. Once F8 is on, you can use F7 to notch up and F6 to notch down. F8, F6, and F7 must be turned off to return to normal mode. If F8 is off and you press F7, the prime mover will run to full speed.

F14, F18 and CV 170 value 0 or 1, can switch between a "normal announcement" or an announcement "with gong".

F9 can increase the speed of the spirax valve by double-clicking it. The speed levels are slow, medium and fast.

17 will bring the locomotive to full stop..

F28 and CV 164 = Value 0, 1, 2 or 3, can switch between different rail joints (three coupler can be activated with CV 165 = value 1).

F29 and CV 169 = value 0 or 1, can switch between the "Automatic Warning System (AWS)" or the "Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS)".
