First train arrives at Port of Sunderland

A train has arrived at the Port of Sunderland for the first time in more than 20 years.

Network Rail has spent £600,000 to reinstate the former rail line into the port in a move to boost freight operations by allowing cargo to be transported onwards by rail. The Port of Sunderland already handles more than 700,000 t of cargo each year.

The reinstated line will allow up to five trains a day to run to and from the port, which now has a connection to the UK's east coast mainline, and from there to the wider rail network and mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel.
