While the printed version of Freightmaster concentrates on major stations and yards on busy lines, online subscribers get access to over 30 extra timetables for additional photographic locations, mainly on scenic and/or semaphore-controlled routes, such as Uffington, Kensington Olympia, Worcester, Walsall, Hexham, Llandudno Junction(North Wales Coast), Kirkby Stephen(Settle and Carlisle line), Rannoch(West Highland Line), Dalwhinnie+Aviemore(Highland Line) Carnoustie, and the Forth and Tay Bridges!
Another major advantage of the online version of Freightmaster is the exclusive discussion forum, which provides a vast amount of addition info not found in the timetables, such as:
‘Breaking News’ about new freight services,
details of one off/short term workings, such as test trains, wagon moves, etc
details of freight diversions and engineering work possesion trains
details of wagon pools, and where particular wagons can be seen operating
location ‘surveys’ for places not covered by the FMonline timetables
advice on when/where to visit particular lines/areas/locations
…and much, much more!
