Sheffield sees iconic marshalling yard reborn as intermodal terminal

Freight forwarding and logistics operator Newell and Wright is the latest enterprise to take advantage of the potential for the former marshalling yard at Tinsley, which lies on the boundary between the industrial cities of Sheffield and Rotherham.
