Caledonian Sleeper variety, June 2015

In recent weeks due to failures and other farces class 37,47,67,87,90 and 92 have all appeared on the sleepers. Locally under Scotrail operation

we had a diet of 90 and more 90's. This past week alone class 87, 90 and 92 have all featured on 1M16 alone. Another twist from next week is that

1S25 will split at Carlisle with the Inverness portion going via the old Mossend route with diesel haulage from Carlisle to Inverness.

May the variety continue all Summer long!
