GBRf are taking over 6S51 Crewe-Carlisle-Mossend departmental from 29th July and its return working. The service is currently run by D B Schencker. It willb be interesting to see if GBRf use a Class92 on thie service.

They either need them for work being taken on , or they are getting them on a speculative venture before the class 66 design falls foul of European Emissions regulations.

Was not aware Rob of the CD situation. Schencker have lost a lot of engineers trains to I believe both GBRf and DRS. Also rumours abound that Schencker have lost the Dagenham to Garston cars, but to whom?
