I’ve never heard about this rail operation before, although that’s no great surprise since the transportation of rubbish isn’t something that I’m an expert in. Anyway, Biffa have two locomotives which operate across the rail network which transport waste around, meaning that at least journeys don’t have to be undertaken by road.
I have to give credit to the operators for their train name, the Flying Dustman. Others seem equally impressed, as Biffa are encouraging rail users to post photos of the locomotive to post on Twitter. But just posting here will suffice me, but it’s still all a marvellous idea and, without sounding like a train spotter, I saw this at Ely railway station.
