Filmed in conjunction with Freightmaster - the national Railfreight timetable - this two hour programme features some of the longest, heaviest, most colourful and biggest freight trains in the UK today!

Highlights include:

  • A farewell look at the Class 57/0s as they go off lease and Virgin Class 57s start their first booked freight work on timber trains.
  • Freightliner 66s take over the potash trains on the Boulby branch while GBRf 66s start work on North East coal trains.
  • There is footage from five Freightmaster hotspots and other well known locations; Stainforth, Garsdale, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Arnside and Earles Sidings in the Hope Valley, with shots of one of the hardest-to-find locomotives in the country - 20168.
  • There is a look at the AC Veterans with Class 86 footage from the West Coast and East Anglia plus Class 90 and 92 hauled freight.
  • Eddie the Engine is featured plus the unusual sight of the Tesco train diverted over Ribblehead!
  • There's Class 08 thrash in the Midlands
  • and from the recent past some purple and green Railtrack Class 31s!

If you are following the current freight scene then this is the ultimate programme for you. Running for a full TWO hours, this comprehensive review features almost 100 different locomotives, filmed from many different locations.

The footage is brand new, never seen before and was filmed between 2003 and 2007.

If you think freight in the UK is all Class 66s - you're in for a surprise!
