I remember up to a month ago 6M95 Dungeness - Willesden ran once, maybe twice every couple of weeks with a single flask.

It is now running solid twice a week with 4 flasks at a time. Why is it Dungeness which is seeing so much activity? Sizewell runs the same as always, as does Bridgwater and Berkely.....

AHEM! Don't enquire too much into that. There is a reason and it's probably classified.

So no more DRS heritage traction through South London :(
My (rather limited) knowledge of power stations suggests that quite a bit of work still goes on for quite a while after a power station stops generating electricity, so there should still be quite a lot to transport up North, for a quite a while. Don't quote me on that though ;)

Dungeness B isn't due to close until 2018, so I imagine that will still warrant some flask traffic through the aforementioned area. Could be wrong though. Incidentally Marv is right about what goes on after electricity generation stops - final site clearance for Dungeness A isn't expected to be completed until the early 22nd century!
