New GBRf intermodal service

Rail Freight

Boxes from Southampton: in September, GB Railfreight began a new intermodal service from Solent Stevedores to Manchester. The northbound service runs as the 14.23 Southampton Western Docks to Trafford Park Euro terminal, but pictured here is the sparsely-loaded southbound service heading through Eastleigh behind No 66724 on 5 September 2019, the third run of this new service. This is the third daily working GBRf offers serving Southampton and GBRf’s 17th intermodal service to date; it runs five days per week. Steve Stubbs
