Some more from around Edinburgh
Author: 86235

At Dalmeny to the west of Edinburgh on Saturday morning, a XC Voyager DEMU on what is the UK's longest individual train journey, the 08:20 Aberdeen to Penzance (arr 21:44).

After a pretty soggy Sunday, it rained virtually all day, Monday dawned bright and fresh. I cycled along the Union Canal to the aqueduct at Slateford, which overlooks the more recent railway viaduct. This is one of ScotRail's new Siemens- built class 380s, part of the ubiquitous Desiro family of multiple units

And last but not least from this morning, the the ecs of Sunday night's London to Edinburgh Caledonian Sleeper being worked back to Polmadie depot for servicing. These are the new CAF built cars.

Duncan, no I was on my bike in any case. Just thought a Voyager needed a different approach. The parapet of the bridge was very low, hence the chain link fence. I also took a shot over the fence too.

It does make an interesting framing!
