The pipes carried are for the Subsea 7 fabrication plant near Wick. After Holytown, the train would head into Mossend Yard, where it would be stabled until later in the day, when it would make the journey north up the Highland Main Line to Inverness. From Inverness, the train would then move to Georgemas Junction, where it would be unloaded.
