The diagram uses a pair of 314's working in multiple and rotating between the Newton via Maxwell Park and the Neilston service.

The Sunday diagram is as follows:

Glasgow Central - Neilston Neilston - Glasgow Central Glasgow Central - Newton (Via Maxwell Park) Newton - Glasgow Central (via Maxwell park)
8.55 9.48 10.36 11.09
11.53 12.48 13.36 14.09
14.53 15.48 16.36 17.09
17.53 18.48 19.36

20.09

20.53 21.48 22.36 23.09


Weekdays, 5 diagrams work using 5 units, with 3 units (a single and a double) working to Gourock early morning with the remainder of the workings mostly concentrating on peak time Neilston workings and daytime off peak workings on the Cathcart Circle and Newton via Maxwell park services. Only 1 diagram remains out post 20.00 and works on Neilston services.

Saturdays use 3 units, 2 working all day on Paisley Canal services and a third coming out to work on Glasgow Central - Newton via Queens Park services from 15.20 onwards.

Units still in service are Carmine and Cream sets 314202, 314205, 314210 and 314216 with Saltire liveried 314203, 314209 and 314214 also still in use. 314207, 314208, 314211 and 314215 are all stored at Yoker with no further use expected.
