Rail Freight Intermodal Freight

Liner train and freightliner are UK terms for trains carrying intermodal containers. The latter name was coined by Richard Beeching in the 1960s, and later became the name of the Freightliner sector of British Rail. This was sold off as a private enterprise, Freightliner, in 1995, as part of the privatisation of BR. Freightliner or liner may mean either intermodal services run solely by Freightliner or intermodal services in general. Additionally, bin liner, or binliner, is a slang term for a liner train carrying containers of waste for disposal.
