Remarks: Freightliner Class 66 no. 66526 (front) 66623 (rear) change drivers at York while working 6Y50 03:45 Northallerton to Doncaster Up Decoy engineers train on Saturday 24th July 2010. (46 wagons = 2526 feet = 770 metres = 2860 tonnes)
I do not know if it is the UK's longest train. It is not that long by US standards. We reglarly have trains with around 150 "wagons", as you call them, and 7-8 locomotives, well over 8000 feet long.
It is a very interesting train though. There is one very long "wagon" mid-train.
Thanks for sharing.
