Following the success of a football special on March 12, GB Railfreight is running six similar trains before the end of the season and is looking to expand the operations still further.
Paul Taylor, business manager for the firm’s passenger operations, explained to RAIL that this will provide another revenue stream for GBRf as it looks to use its passenger operator licence.
The trains are booked by Thomas Cook, which uses Riviera Trains. GBRf is contracted to operate the train and to provide crews and traction. RT provides the carriages.
