The Scottish Executive have awarded 200k to Eddie Stobart to move 26 Tesco containers per day from Daventry to Coatbridge. The DfT are also contributing 235k. Haulage will be provided by DRS. (26.04.06)

heavy susidised .

With ASDA proposing to open in Thurso, and Tesco committed to Wick, hopes rise for a return to rail for retail goods. (03.02.06)

Tesco sends one train per day from Daventry to Grange-mouth, five days a week, Tesco freight is loaded on the northbound journey and then a mix of Tesco and other customers' products for the return leg.

From a newspaper regarding rail freight

Round and round . . .
First almost everything was sent by rail (1950s) then again in the 1990s then it stopped and now they're trying to get it back onto rail.
