Mendip and VTG in 130 wagon deal

Mendip Rail is to hire 130 new aggregate wagons from VTG Rail UK. The wagons, a mixture of hoppers and boxes, will be used to move stone from the Aggregate Industries and Hanson “super-quarries” in Somerset to a range of destinations, many in London and the South East. 

Jason Black, Mendip’s managing director said: “The placement of such a large order is an indication of the optimism shown by both Aggregate Industries and Hanson in the continued growth from their current and future rail supplied depots, coupled with their strive to further reduce road haulage miles.”
