Tesco Train operator goes nuclear

[ April 26, 2021   //   ]

Direct Rail Services (DRS), along with its fellow Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, (NDA) transport subsidiaries, is to become part of a new Nuclear Transport Solutions (NTS) division. NTS will operate DRS and Pacific Nuclear Transport but its primary objective will be to support the NDA in cleaning up the UK’s earliest civil nuclear sites. Although DRS has its roots in the rail transport of nuclear material, it is perhaps best known in the industry as a general (non-nuclear) intermodal operator including the ‘Tesco trains’ between the north and south of the country.
