Tony's train

No alternative text provided

The great and the good of the UK's Rail Freight industry ​gathered at Victoria station on the June 27th to wish Tony Berkeley a very happy retirement.

Representatives from RFG joined guests from GBRf, Freightliner, Colas Rail, DRS, PD Ports, Network Rail, Multimodal, ABP, Solent Stevedores, Armitt Group, Hutchison Ports, DP World, Potter Logistics and dozens of other companies to pay tribute to Tony's work at RFG. 

The day started with the normally urbane Lord Berkeley being rendered speechless (!) for a short time as he unveiled his very own train - a GBRf Type 66. Guests then boarded Pullman style coaches to enjoy a very agreeable four course lunch as the locomotive whisked the train around the beautiful Kent countryside. The day finished, not suprisingly, in a London pub!

“It has been a privilege to have worked for RFG and its members in the rail freight sector for some 20 years but at a time when RFG, under Maggie Simpson’s leadership, is in the best possible state to take on the challenges facing the industry, it is time for me to stand aside and ensure a smooth transition with a new Chair.”

The Board were unanimous in their praise and thanks for Tony’s efforts in firmly establishing the RFG as an informed and effective champion of the rail freight sector during his tenure as Chairman.
