Electric rail freight is sparking into life with a new service – John Yellowlees

With initial support from the Department for Transport’s First of a Kind Programme, Varamis Rail has leased from Eversholt Rail a 35-year-old former passenger-carrying four-car electric multiple-unit, refurbished internally with seats removed to accommodate small consignments, to provide a proof-of-concept service running five nights a week in both directions between two locations convenient for the motorway network, Mossend near Glasgow and Birmingham International Station.
