On 13th March, 314204 became the third class 314 to be taken to Glasgow Works to be stripped for spares before scrapping.   It was hauled by 37884 on 5Q06 from Yoker to Glasgow Works via Glasgow Central Low Level, Bargeddie and Gartcosh.

This was 314204's first and last journey via Gartcosh and its final ever journey by rail.   The class 314 disposals are set to continue this week with 37884 hauling 314201 and 314206 from Shields - Newport docks for scrapping on Thursday 14th March. Unfortunately the move is at night, leaving Shields at 22.14 so it won't be possible to photo it.
