"£17 million boost to Southampton’s rail freight capacity" - some of this is a re-heated government announcement, following work not completed by early 2019. Some longer trains have been running, 4M61 is a noticeably long train - may be 600m. Network Rail announcement for works through to February 2021.

Class 701 Arterio approved for public use by Office of Rail and Road. This is the authorisation letter.

Disposals offer package from Eversholt.
