2Y72 0005 Westerton to Glasgow Queen Street – Class 170

15th January 2021 1 By Adam Forsyth

Before the Airdrie to Bathgate Rail Link was opened in 2010, the Caledonian Sleeper could not serve Glasgow and Edinburgh on its journey from Fort William to London. The sleeper service is used as an extra daytime train between Fort William and Edinburgh. To facilitate Glasgow passengers benefiting from the later train, the sleeper service stopped at Westerton and ScotRail provided a connection to Glasgow via the Maryhill line. This was booked to be a Class 156 DMU however it could be worked by anything required. If it was anything other than a 156, it was rare for it to work beyond Maryhill Park Jn in service

In this scenario, you are working this service and you are lucky that a rare Class 170 has dropped on this service tonight. You will take the train ECS from Glasgow to Westerton, followed by working the service back into Queen Street.
