Electric switch needed to increase freight speeds

Tags: ,


Switching from diesel engine to electric traction will have more effect on freight train speeds than simply increasing speed limits from 75mph to 90mph, according to Network Rail in its draft Freight Network Study.

Average speeds of freight trains remain low. Those northbound through Crewe run at just 25mph, and those between Immingham and Drax (a journey which would take a lorry around an hour) just 17mph.
