Cement train workings in Fife, 15th - 17th April 2019

There appear to be fewer JPA bogie wagons in the Aberdeen workings, with more 4 wheel PCAs wagons in the formations, these always following at the rear. Some rumours that long JPA formations to Aberdeen may have been less preferable with the civil engineers.

70814 leads 6B32 16:52 Craiginches - Oxwellmains, Monday 15th.

The only other working of the train in the week was on Wednesday 17th, again with 70814. On Saturday the loco was noted, while passing on the M74, at Elvanfoot, on WCML Easter engineers' duties.

Surprise! On 17th 56087 had earlier worked to Aberdeen with 6Z56 08:00 Irvine Caledonian Paper - Aberdeen Waterloo - pictures for the day.
