Baretable train British style
Author: erielackawanna

I'm sure someone is going to correct me because this is probably nothing like an American baretable, but that was what I assumed when this GB Railfreight Class 66 came to me at Peterborough on April 10 with what I think was an articulated container platform in tow. This train was listed as 4L13 Hams Hall to Felixstowe. I had gone to Peterborough in hope of getting a lot of freight, but being a bank holiday, this was the only one I saw moving.

Looks like a baretable to me.

On the British forums they call that a "Fresh Air Express"

Doesn't look like a regular intermodal train, loaded or just fresh air. On 10th April at mid day 66730 was at Peterborough unallocated, so I suspect it was moving some flats too or from repair. From the day's TOPS lists there wasn't a 4L13 on the 10th.
