    Once a week, a service runs from the former Rossington Colliery (Rossington Loading Point) to Roxby Gullet. It seems to be cancelled every time it is supposed to run, though I think this might be to do with Rossington IPort.

    But my question is, did it ever run? Did anybody photograph it?

    Here is the path and working:

    FRGT 1329 Rossington Loading Point to Scunthorpe Roxby Gullet

    Schedule Information
    • WTT schedule UID H42433
    • Runs FO between 25/05/2018 to 07/12/2018
    • Service code 59155220
    Operational Information
    • Schedule from ITPS
    • Timed for 60mph max
    • Diesel locomotive, trailing load 2000tonnes

    Rossington Loading Point/Colliery isn't the same as the Iport, which is listed as "Doncaster Iport" in the systems, e.g. Realtimetrains.
    The Iport is connected to the freight line via Maltby, while Rossington is connected to the ECML S of Doncaster.

    Can't help with the service, though Roxby Gullet was the landfill site for the Manchester waste until fairly recently, so could your service have been intended for colliery waste to cap a landfill? Just a theory.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am not entirely sure, but it might've been for that. I know Roxby is still used for waste in Manchester and even some from Angerstein Industrial Estate in Kent, via GBRf ran services rather than DB Cargo or Freightliner.

    Sorry for the late reply, I haven't been able to get on in a few days.
