I am looking for information, particularly suggested reading
material, i.e., books, periodicals, newspaper articles,
journals or white papers, regarding:

-privitization of rail freight traffic handling in Britain
-freight operations in Britain vis-a-vis passenger operations

Although I am no expert in British Rail history I have found "British
Railways, 1948-1973: A Business History" to be a great place to start. 
Detailed coverage of privatization beginning to 1973.  Bibliography can be
very useful for continued reading.  Full citation:

It will take some time to read but it is worth it.
