314205 at Newton314205 at NewtonFast approaching the end of it's 40 year long working life, SPT Carmine and Cream liveried 314205 awaits it's departure from a wet and windy Newton station with 2P23 17.49 service to Glasgow Central 7.12.19 With possibly as little a time as a week left of operation for the Class 314's, six of the class are still seeing use in service. It is still possible to catch 314202 / 205 / 209 / 210 / 214 and 216 in service.

If their use in service ends on Saturday 14th (the day before the timetable changes), it is likely that Saturday 7th was the last time that a 314 will have run from Glasgow Central - Newton via Mount Florida, with 314205 doing the honours.  

Sunday 8th will be their last Sunday in service with one unit (probably 314205) due in service working a diagram alternating between Glasgow Central - Newton and Neilston although it is likely that this will be upped to a 6 car set with the League Cup final taking place at Hampden.   There is also a chance that a couple of 314's may end up out on Glasgow Central - Mount Florida extras.

Monday 9th - Friday 13th should see the 314's on their usual weekday workings both on peak workings on the Neilston line and the daytime off peak workings on the Cathcart Circle and Newton via Maxwell Park workings with 5 units seeing use daily.

Saturday 14th would see the 314's work for the final time on the Paisley Canal line.   It is now a case of photo and ride on them while you still can.

With only a few days of it's 40 year long working life remaining, SPT Carmine and Cream liveried 314205 awaits it's departure from a wet and windy Newton station with 2P23 17.49 service to Glasgow Central 7.12.19 314205 at Newton314205 at NewtonWith only a few days of it's 40 year long working life remaining, SPT Carmine and Cream liveried 314205 awaits it's departure from a wet and windy Newton station with 2P23 17.49 service to Glasgow Central 7.12.19
