Up to 2015, the Belmond Royal Scotsman was hauled by West Coast Railways using Class 37, Class 47 or Class 57 diesel locomotives.

In 2016 the haulage contract was taken over by GB Railfreight and two of their Class 66 diesel locomotives, namely 66743 and 66746 are now dedicated to the train, and as you can see, repainted into Belmond Royal Scotsman maroon livery.
