The Royal Scotsman livery at MIRP

A rare sighting of the Royal Scotsman livery at Mossend International Railfreight Park (MIRP). This special luxury train, first launched in 1985, paid a visit to our operator, PD Stirling’s yard. A sight to see for railway enthusiasts!

For over four years now, PD Ports has operated a very successful intermodal rail freight service with direct connections from Teesport to Mossend. This route provides a simple, more cost effective and environmentally friendly route for European markets for Scotland’s imports and exports, whilst alleviating the already congested UK road network. As trade continues to grow and the requirements for more freight to be moved by rail, the new development at Mossend International Railfreight Park is both much needed and an exciting opportunity. It will play a significant role in transforming the modern supply chains into and out of Scotland and we wish the project every success.
