Big Freight 7   

Big Freight 7
120 mins - £19.95 (TC071)

The seventh DVD in the Big Freight series looks at the ever popular and ever changing rail freight scene in the UK.

With new locos, new liveries and new flows, once again, we go in search of the longest, the heaviest and the biggest freight trains.

Included in this edition is a feature on the Fiddlers Ferry coal circuit which probably employs the most varied traction anywhere, with classes 59, 60 and 66 working for DB Schenker, classes 66 and 70 for Freightliner and throw in a GBRf class 66 on the Gypsum trains and it’s an interesting freight-only railway.

Filmed with the full assistance of Colas, this cab ride starts at Carlisle Yard and continues through to Warrington, filmed on a fine sunny September day. The loco was 66848.
