Class 314's in Glasgow

April 06, 2018  •  1 Comment

2018 could potentially be the final year in service for the class 314's in and around Glasgow (depending on whether the issues with the class 385's that are supposed to be replacing them are resolved).  The 16 strong fleet have gave excellent service over the past almost 40 years.   They initially worked on the Argyle line from 1979 until 1999, when they transferred over to the Cathcart Circle as well as some journeys on the Gourock and Wymess Bay services.    Today all 16 units are still in service with 7 in the Saltire livery and the remainder (9) in the SPT Carmine and Cream livery.  

SPT Carmine and Cream livery: 314201, 202, 205, 206, 207, 210, 213, 215 and 216

Scotrail Saltire livery: 314203, 204, 208, 209, 211, 212 and 214

Remember 314203 was involved in the Newton crash and a driving coach was written off. It was replaced with a Merseyrail coach. It has different (curved) internal grab rails.
