Sorry if a thread exists but the site search isn't working through my mobile.

Seen heading East (towards Hamilton) at 1440 today - two class 37s hauling two flat wagons with smallish square white containers in the centre. Is this a nuclear waste train or what? Wasn't expecting any traffic and still getting parked so missed the chance to film or even take a photo on my phone.

EDIT: Now that I'm back and have a laptop handy this looks like it

I have only once before seen freight pass through UDD. Hope we get the freight times back on opentraintimes soon!

Be going to Sellafield for reprocessing - at a guess it might have come from Torness.

Was trying to think of nuclear power stations in Scotland apart from Torness and Dounreay.
