Its very possible. Will keep an eye to see if any get reinstated

RE: Freightliner
Freightliner have been awarded the Mendip Rail (Hanson & Aggregate Industries) contract which will involve the acquirement of 59001/02/04/05 and 59101-04. The DB 59/2s will be dispatched to other operations and could quite possibly end up further north. The 59s transferring to Freightliner will remain the main stay on the Aggregate work but will more than likely be supported on the workings by currently returning to action Class 70s rather than the 59/2s. Freightliner operations of this will begin in November 2019.

More info on the awarding of the contract here;
