Yes it ran yesterday (Friday) with 66152; fairly sure this was the first run. Empty flats only, no containers. Not sure when the loaded train starts.

Are these trains likely to take the same route from Warrington to the Calder Valley as the LBT-Drax trains?

So empty trains will be through MCV.

Yes, that is what the timetables are suggesting.

It looks like freight is going to return to the Kirkby to Wigan line six days a week as Potter Logistics reopen their Knowsley terminal.

The first freight train since 2006 last week came through Potter Logistics’ Knowsley rail freight terminal, just east of Liverpool in the northwest of England, in a revival of regular services at the site.

A new twice-daily train service will operate five days per week and once on Saturdays and will initially move freight from Knowsley Industrial Park to the northeast of England.

Following work by Network Rail, the Potter Logistics site is now reconnected to the West Coast mainline at Wigan and onto the rest of the UK network including Europe via the Channel tunnel. This presents several rail freight opportunities for the development land at the terminal, the company claimed.

Potter Logistics managing director Matthew Lamb commented: “We are delighted that the Knowsley train terminal connection has reopened, which allows Potter Logistics to further extend its rail activities. Freight trains into Knowsley represent a significant milestone for the terminal and opens up the adjacent terminal land for rail freight usage.”

Founded in 1965, Potter Logistics employs around 300 staff providing specialist logistics solutions focusing on the chemical, agricultural, pharmaceutical and food industries. Potter Logistics operates six distribution centres located in Droitwich, Ely, Knowsley, Ripon, Selby and York.

I think they are referring to the "Binliners" to be honest which the first trial trains already operated. The rail image in the article is actually one of those trains too. The frequency of the service and destination as per article co-incides with the "binliner" schedules and Wilton, being in the North East also.

Now if is anything else, then it has been kept very quiet indeed and would be "news" indeed.

Yes as far as I know it is the binliner trains and it reality it is just confirmation that the service is going to run but at least it is step in the right direction. It will be interesting to see if the adjacent Peel site provides further traffic in the longer term.

Not sure if it is accurate, but I have heard that there are "problems with the loading equipment" at Knowsley.

Ha yes I had heard the same problem as Bevan I think. Some kind of damage to the actual building during a 'shunting mishap'.
