Most services to/from Lime St tend to be on a clock-face pattern and there's no reason to expect that to change radically after electrification, so if there are one or two freight paths available, then they should be available most hours outside of the peaks, but only time will tell when the WTT appears....

Please see my further comments under the Lancashire Triangle thread.

It worked a containerised Biomass train to Seaforth and should leave on Monday morning with 4G01. I believe this was its first revenue earning train in this country.

66735 and 66741 arrived at Tuebrook Sidings at 0530 this morning with a 25 wagon 2200 ton train of biomass from Tyne Dock. It departed at 0830 for Drax Power Station. This was a trial presumably assessing the viability of such a working.

RE: GB Railfreight
This purchase of the Class 92 locomotives could also be classed as a good enviromental measure , as the services they will be operated on would almost certaintly have been operated by diesels otherwise .
