This is interesting… https://www.railwaygazette.com/uk/swift-express-freight-emu-conversions-agreed/60372.article?ID=z9xqh~9ffnqj~jnnxt~W4ik~Ky0gk&utm_campaign=RG-WEEKLY-HISPASAT-261121-DE&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_content=RG-WEEKLY-HISPASAT-261121-DE In the UK, four class 321 EMU units are being converted to light goods freight in an attempt to provide a more environmental alternative to trucks, especially during current supply chain issues. New concept is called Swift Express Freight and it’s run by the Eversholt Rail leasing company. I know I’ve seen discussion on these boards about how the Japanese are transporting food and light goods into Tokyo using converted passenger stock. It’s interesting if globally Less-than-Carload (LCL) or light goods freight makes a bit of a comeback.
