Merseyside’s non-recyclable waste an update

Class 66 diesel locomotives 66040 and 66145 leaving Knowsley Freight Terminal on 24th August 2018 with another trainload of Merseyside’s waste.

I posted back in September 2018 about how Merseyside’s non-recyclable waste is moved to the north east of England to be used as fuel in Wilton Power Station. See link below:-

Since I penned my original posing I’ve come across an excellent video on You Tube by Don Coffey showing detail of the railway movements. If you skip to 2h & 10mins for the section from Rainford Junction to Knowsley you can watch the Merseyside/local part of the route.

Excellent video Don, thanks for sharing.
