DB Cargo have announced a partnership with Maritime to increase rail freight operations between the two companies.

DB Cargo have liveried two of their locomotives into Maritime livery, similar to that of GB Railfreight’s 66727, seen below.

DB Cargo will be contracted to run Maritime’s rail operations out of Felixstowe and Southampton intermodal rail ports.

Maritime Intermodal will take on responsibility for DB Cargo UK’s terminals in Trafford Park, Manchester and Wakefield in West Yorkshire, thus strengthening the road haulier’s national network of strategic hubs.

29/03/19 – 66135 hauled Maritime livery 66005 and 66047 on 0Z66 Toton TMD to Wakefield Eurport this morning, having been repainted at Toton paint shop.

This may have something to do with 67029 working Kings Cross to Normanton Wakefield Europort today, perhaps for a partnership unveiling?

67029 will work Kings Cross to Wakefield Europort with the DB Cargo managers train which arrived at Kings Cross ECS earlier today.
