Interesting, but what are they going to do with the site / what traffic are they going to come up with? That's going to be the next stage of Donnington history, as afterall thats surley been it's difficult downfall so far.

The site has plenty of potential - clearly being part of a network of freight sites makes much more sense than a stand-alone facility as is has been up to now.

The area is industrial and the MoD have one of their main armoured bases/repair sites at Donnington. The M54 is nearby too.

I understood that use of the yard ended with the scaling back of production at the start of the recession?
