More 1S81 memories and a few S06 pilots too

Thanks to Ady Bullock for his cracking gen and memories

I read your article on 1S81 Carlisle Perth. I caught this train a few times, although only managed to score 4 new locos on it (log extract below). A good variety of classes 26/27/37/47/81/85/86. Most disappointing was ETH duff 47467 on 20th Aug 84. Most rateable was 26003 the very next day!

You may note some very short leaps to Coatbridge. This was so we could get back to Glasgow by EMU from Coatbridge Sunnyside for a southbound sleeper to Carlisle to pick up the Stranraer sleeper (1S06) and take it to cover the pilot  loco that came on the front at Newton on Ayr or Ayr. If it was rateable take it to Stranraer. If it was dud, bail at Ayr and wait for the first DMU or one of the early morning loco hauled commuter trains into Glasgow to start the next days moves.

 

A selection of Stranraer moves on the down sleeper is below. My only regret is why I bailed off 26015/26023 after only 1 mile and subsequently never had a 26 to or from Stranraer!
