Freight in Malvern

Seen on 3rd December 2016, two grubby Freightliners (66523 and 66513, not that you can tell) pulling the 0615 Swindon to Gloucester Horton Road. Nice colours, though!


  1. What is this train? I was roofing a house next to malvern link station and it thundered through the same time each day?

    1. Hi! This was one of the freight trains rerouted through Malvern while the Severn Tunnel is closed for maintenance. The diverted trains usually run the same timetable for a few weeks at a time. Not sure if the tunnel is open again yet or whether there will be more freight about in the new year.
