GB RAILFREIGHT HAS secured an extension to its contract with Harsco Rail Limited for a further four years. Under the agreement GBRf will continue to provide Harsco with qualified train drivers for route conductor services, predominantly in the South and East of England but also in other areas, for Harsco’s rail grinding operations.

Alan Wardle, MD, Harsco, said: “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with GB Railfreight. GB Railfreight provides a reliable service which fits well with our business.” 

Harsco currently operates four switch and crossing rail grinders throughout the country under a contract with Network Rail. Operating most weekday nights they ensure that rails are kept at the correct profiles for the safe running of trains. Harsco also operates its own Switch and Crossing Grinder in UK and Europe.

Phil Amos, market manager for rail services, GBRf, said: “GB Railfreight has developed an excellent relationship with Harsco over the past five years, helping to ensure that a reliable and flexible service is given to its client, Network Rail. We look forward to continuing this partnership into the future.”

The agreement is an extension of a contract GBRf and Harsco started back in 2005.
