Just an observation, I know I'm a bit behind in the mashinations of the modern railway, but I was travelling between Nuneaton and Peterborough (&rtn.) the other Saturday (16/4) and counted six Freightliner trains on the route, as well as other freight stuff. I was genuinely surprised and pleased to see that amount of freight on this line especially on a Saturday. When I worked at Petfoods on the dogpoo expresses all I ever saw was the Redlands and CCE stuff. Those class 70s can drag an awful lot of boxes. I take it they were all coming from and going to Felixtowe? Or was there some sort of diversion on that day? Good to see anyway.
