GBRailfreight, after takeover by Europorte in 2010, found themselves with access to electric traction in the form of a fleet of Class 92s. They were slowly brought into traffic and one of the first duties was to and from Trafford Park on the daily service from and to Felixstowe.

This was previously worked by a Class 66 throughout but diverting the train via London enabled the use of electric traction between Ipswich and Trafford Park.

92043 is seen below passing Gatley with 4L18 Trafford Park-Felixstowe on 8th July 2013.
