Fiddlers Ferry to Close
Fiddlers Ferry to Close
It has been announced today that Fiddlers Ferry Power Station is to close in March 2020, I was wondering how much Coal is still transported by Rail? Is it still regular or is it just the odd Freight move here and there?

Well there's a few paths booked for freight movements in to Fiddlers Ferry but doesn't look like any of them were used today: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/a...&order=wtt

I imagine that there will be a few railtours around there before it closes.

And what will be the future of the Warrington LL to Ditton line?

Rail Mileage travelled 2012 is 19790 miles and 2013 is 18861 miles
