Who moves what modern wagons?

Postby triuph1050 » Sat Dec 15, 2018 6:03 pm

Hi people
So what are the companies that haul what modern company wagons? What I'm after is do they mix and match each others wagons. i.e.
Freightliner pulling Freightliner stock I have also seen behind DB Schenker but maybe not by EWS. You see what I'm asking? Who moves what? On my modern era based layout I want to keep it right as I have EWS, DB Schenker, GBRf, Freightline and Eturophoenix locos, with same company stock and including Network Rail (not Eturophoenix). Yes theres more companies but I don't have them
Cheers
Peter

What i like to do is go on youtube and search for things like 'uk rail freight'.

You then you will get a lot of up to date 'trainspotter' videos.

I find these interesting to watch anyway, but can also be a good reference to what you are asking.

Thanks

Yes thanks Dan thats what I do, yet to find an EWS with anything Freightliner so won't be doing that too. They all pull containers however but I only have a small layout so don't have the room for a decent length container train.
