Rail Freight: Scotland

The Railways and Industry Series, Vol 6

In the early 1980s, Ravenscraig steel works was the biggest source of rail freight north of the border. Wagonload freight was still providing a service on some rural lines. Today, both are a distant memory and coal is no longer carried by rail anywhere in Scotland. However, in a few areas, rail freight has done well. The Oxwellmains cement works and Grangemouth refinery are still big rail users. Intermodal traffic has also grown substantially. With over 160 photographs, this volume looks at the changing face of rail freight in Scotland. It details the changes in traction, rolling stock and railway infrastructure over four decades.
