There are still a few facilities open at The Magnum, but The Portal will be opening (later than originally advertised) soon. I'm not sure it it will be all the same staff and therefore the same frequency etc.

I'm trying to find at least one new user a month, that isn't working. The Portal, the new leisure centre in Irvine, the same as the Magnum was, 459.800 on 77.0.

The local rags here gave the impression it was all new, including staff.

Tone should be 97.4. Either I made a typo or they have more than one channel. They are having a bit of a banter at the UPM Kymmene Caledonian Paper Mill near Irvine now.

Another GBRf one, 453.6125 on 179.9. GBRf have the contract to take china clay from the paper mill in Irvine, I think still to Burngullow, the longest distance a load travels by rail in the UK.

Andrew

The new GBRf china clay traffic to Irvine is a 12 month contract from Antwerp in Belgium via the channel tunnel not Burngullow. 453.6125 (179) is a Mossend radio more likely to be DBC not GBRf.

I was wondering that about DBS, I have seen them with the tanks go through Irvine recently, but then the loco's can be on hire to other companies. They did go to Burngullow years ago, In didn't have time to Google it on my phone. When I checked the realtimetrains site, it only goes to Mossend where they replace the loco with an electric. I've heard two frequencies, one with two different tones in the past three weeks. Some weeks the trains go via Ayr then the Glasgow South Western, which is going away from where i am, sometimes they head north through Irvine where I am.

You will find it on RTT running Weds showing from Dollands Moor, the yard at the north of the Chunnel.

DC Rail hire DBC and GBRf locos but they have no traffic north of the border currently.

DBC still have Burgullow traffic but not to Ayrshire.

Getting a bit off topic.......

I'm getting slightly confused. One of the very few daytime freights on the line I live beside is GBRf, from Tyne to Hunterston. Colas do the fuel train to Prestwick Airport. I have heard 453.6125 through the night when engineering work has been going on, but not seen the loco as it could be miles away (I live at quite a height). I didn't catch the tone then.

Freightliner HeavyHaul which I rarely see at all now, used 446's in Barassie when the engines are running round their trains. usually 6 or 8. With Logannet etc dwindling and mines closing, freight is rare here, that and a 4 times an hour passenger service from Ayr to Glasgow and back.
