Murco Red tanks in Scotland

23 of VTG’s red tankers have been moved to Scotland for use on Grangemouth traffic.

The wagons involved are VTG88115-37.  These were formerly used for Murco traffic from South Wales, and are in all-over red livery with blue VTG lettering.  The wagons were built in 2006 and are of the same type being offered by Revolution.

This is believed to be the first time the red VTG tankers have been seen north of the border.

They were moved north on Friday June 11th 2015.  60011 took the train as far as Carlisle, where 66170 took over.
