Edinburgh, 13th December 2023


397001 1M85 10:11 Edinburgh - Carlisle (terminated short, rather than Manchester Airport.)

92020 BILLY STIRLING, between sleeper duties. Named at the time of COP26 in 2021.

Lumo 803002 arriving with 1S91 05:48 Kings Cross - Edinburgh. Revised colours with silver highlights above the lights, and a Lumo flash between them, applied in mid-November 2023.

43128 has been the Holy Grail for Scottish spotters, since it has never worked a train since delivery to ScotRail, and was often hidden inside. Noted when passing Haymarket shed, I believe completing my ScotRail HST power cars.

43031 on Haymarket shed, with Murrayfield Stadium in the background.
