The Xrail Alliance

The Railway Gazette reports that representatives from seven major rail freight operators signed an agreement in Zürich on February 18 to establish a new alliance for the development and operation of international wagon-load traffic. The agreement was signed by the chief executives from CD Cargo, CFL Cargo, DB Schenker Rail, Green Cargo, Rail Cargo Austria, SBB Cargo and SNCB Logistics. Britain, which abandoned wagon-load freight just before the Channel Tunnel opened (coincidence?), does not appear on the map of countries where the Alliance will operate.
