Any news on the cement traffic being increased by rail to aberdeen as this was discussed last year?

What happened to pipe traffic from hartlepool? Has the flow finished? Any news on the china clay flow to waterloo being increased?

Any new freight flows coming to aberdeen in the next few months like a timber train from elgin?

DRS 4A13/4N83 now runs on mondays meaning it runs 7
days a week now.

Last weeks 6D84 (Thursday) ran with some BTAs along with the usual ICA/TEAs, why was this happening?

After all this time, I finally learn why the Waterloo branch is still there. Aberdeen Yard used to hold a great deal of interest before it disappeared under Union Square. I have lots of pictures taken from Platform 2 (before the gates) and the former Motorail loading dock of various trains shunting and the DRS Liner loading/unloading there. All moved now and the platforms gated off. There was also a brief period where DHL ran a train of old RES parcels vans in 2005, but it didn't last long.

A whisky train is soon to be trialling to elgin next spring (see other thread recently)

And the hartlepool to dyce pipes ran today with 66147 in charge, let's hope this continues to run rather than running today then won't run for quite a while. Last time it ran was friday 27th April of this year.
