Freightliner recently carried out a successful HVO (hydro-treated vegetable oil) fuel trial, when locomotive 70017 ran 7A91 Merehead to Acton (106 miles), hauling 59205 and 66524 as well as 33JNA loaded wagons. The train weight was 4000 tons, making this the longest and heaviest train on the UK network with a single loco using 100% sustainable fuel.
