The Delivering The Goods series takes an extended look at all the British rail companies in the decade since 2000.

This volume features the long-established Freightliner, a company which has grown from deep-sea container operator to multi-purpose freight mover in the period under review.

By making full use of modern motive power and developing it to suit specific requirements, Freightliner's operations have become surprisingly varied and widespread, and truly nation-wide.

Programme sections include:

Class 70 arrival and Traction Review

Container Traffic
Classes 47, 57, 66, 86, 70 and 90, filmed at numerous locations on the core routes to Southampton, Felixstowe and Coatbridge.

Network Rail Contracts
The West Coast Main Line upgrade, and Britain's longest train, the High Output Ballast Cleaner, with top and tailed class 66s.

Stone And Ballast
From Penmaenmawr, Mountsorrel and Bardon Hill, as well as a one-off working from Bury St. Edmunds to Hirwaun.

Coal And Coke
The imports flow from East Coast ports to the Aire Valley, the Anglo-Scottish traffic and class 70 trials.

Cement Workings
With both 66/5s and 66/6s.

Household Waste Trains
Including the hired-in class 47/8s for the Calvert bins.

Stock Moves
Including the removal of Southern slam-door units for scrap and the movement of redundant wagons.

A close-up look at this busy container port and its rail operations.
