Rail mail may be returning.
First subsidiary GB Railfreight (GBRf) is in 'advanced negotiations' with Royal Mail about a deal which could see trains moving post between London, the north west, the north east and Scotland, Rail magazine reported.
Royal Mail controversially announced last June that it was ditching rail altogether, after 173 years of using the railways, in favour of road and air transport.
GBRf confirmed that its negotiations with Royal Mail were at an advanced stage, but declined to comment further, the magazine said. No-one from GBRf was available to comment.
