Rail sleeper services between Scotland and London are to be handled by a freight specialist firm as part of the new franchise. GB Railfreight has been signed up by Serco to provide locomotives and drivers when it takes over the Caledonian Sleeper service from April. The trains run between London Euston and five Scottish destinations. The contract, to run in both directions six nights a week, is worth around £100m spread over 15 years.
