Portobello Freightliner Terminal

'Well hello there... I was wondering if there was any possibility.... ' ... 'None whatsoever.' Two failed propositions at Portobello FLT in October 1968. A railwayman attempts to persuade the reigning 'Miss Rail News' to swap hats, while the new Freightliner Euro-Scot prepares to embark on its inaugural run. This short-lived service, operating via Stratford FLT, thence the Dover - Calais ferry, was eventually abandoned after failing to achieve required loadings. The locomotive employed on this occasion is Deltic D9021 Argyll and Sutherland Highlander. See image 31344
