Produced in conjunction with Freightmaster – the National Railfreight Timetable – this programme features the best action from around the UK, with many freight highlights from the year, including the resurrection of the Class 56 and more refurbished Class 60s in traffic.
Starting with the return of the Class 56, see the Colas locos on the Boston steel and timber trains and the DCR locos working stone, scrap and stock moves. Part two of our feature on the Liverpool to Fiddlers Ferry coal circuit looks at the two freight-only sections of the route, complete with semaphore signals and dedicated Class 60 haulage. In Scotland, 37688 takes on the West Highland line on ballast duties and there’s a special feature on 66607 and a coal train to Leith Docks. 4M29 from Felixstowe may be just another Intermodal flow operated by GBRf and hauled by a Class 66 but when the train gets to Manchester a BR green liveried Class 09 takes over! See 09002 and 09009 in action along a busy main road!
As ever there’s a bagful of unusual workings including the day 60011 worked an Intermodal train, orange Class 20s on stock moves, Network Rail 57s on RHTT duties, Class 73s on Merseyrail plus action from various Freightmaster Hotspots. So much more than just trains passing the camera!
Filmed in 16:9 widescreen with maps and an informative but unobtrusive script.
