Train linking London, Northants and Scotland
UK-based Eddie Stobart has introduced a new train service connecting the port of Tilbury in London to Daventry in Northamptonshire and Mossend in Scotland.
Stobart’s first ever train service to run from the port of Tilbury has the capacity to haul 30 - 36 containers and is operated in collaboration with the port of Tilbury, Direct Rail Services, JF Hillebrand and Samskip.
The train will run thrice weekly between Tilbury and Daventry, and twice weekly from Daventry to Mossend. The haulage company launched the new rail offer as part of a four month trial, with a view to being rolled out fully in 2019. (ben)
