At the end of last month, GB Railfreight (GBRf) celebrated the success of its 10 year track renewals contract with London Underground as it ran the last of its trains for the infrastructure manager.
Since 2006, GBRf has run between two and eight trains each weekend, bringing sleepers, rails, ballast and materials from Wellingborough and Ferme Park to the District or Metropolitan lines, taking away spoil and life expired track panels.
