From FM Rail websiteVFM Railfreight Service Launch - Midlands to Scottish Central belt and return
Victa Railfreight in Partnership with FM Rail is launching a Rail Freight service between Birmingham (Hams Hall) and Glasgow (Mossend) for unitised cargo on Wednesday 1st November 2006.
In order to ensure service quality, the operation will be phased in, operating three days per week initially, with the aim of a five-day per week service at the start of 2007 to coincide with an extension to London (North Thameside). Additional terminal locations may be added to the schedule according to customer demand.
Initially the trains can convey most unitised cargo in ISO Containers or Swap Bodies up to 96 high and certain other traffics by prior arrangement.
Dedicated Customer Service facilities have been set up and bookings for the first trains are open.
Please contact one of the launch team on 0845 873 8100 to receive further updated information and details of booking arrangements.
Interesting development - where could the North Thameside terminal be and are they using Class 47's on the new service?
