This page is to provide a guide to the route and booked# timings of a unique new freight venture for 2004 using Class 47's, and provides the route and booked timings of Advenza Freight Ltd's FreightBus - a Barking-Hillington service.
The new service will provide businesses the opportunity to transport anything between one pallet, to an entire trainload(!) of pallets between London and Glasgow on a choice of three trains per week each way.

The train was intended to begin on Monday 1st March 2004, but has been put back to Monday 5th April 2004.

Note freight trains can run very early/late depending on pathing/engineering works so these times are provided as a guide only.
