Rail freight honours RM columnist Lord Berkeley


TWO decades as chairman of the Rail Freight Group has seen Lord Berkeley honoured with the surprise eponymous naming of GBRf Class 66 No. 66755. Retiring from his position later in the year, the sterling work of The RM columnist to “enhance and support open access, modal shift and the future growth of rail freight” was praised by RFG executive director Maggie Simpson before Tony Berkeley and guests set off around Kent in a specially chartered train, hauled by No. 66744.
