Wine for Avonmouth

Rail Freight

New flow: this is No 66751 on the Henbury loop on 27 July 2019 with a new 4V35 08.15 (SO) London Gateway to Avonmouth West Wharf service, its payload being wine bound for a processing and bottling plant that used to be the main customer for Bristol Railport. There are suggestions that, following the scrapping of tolls on the Severn Crossing, this flow may end up at Cardiff Wentloog terminal and be moved from there by lorry to the bottling plant.
