51036 leads a 6-car Swindon Inter-City formation into Glasgow Central station in the early 1980s. Ian MacDonald.

DMU

Date: circa 1982

DMU

Date: August 1982

Set number: 126406

Sc51036 in Kyle Street sidings (behind Ayr station) in August 1982. At this time the class had gone past their BR "sell by" date and almost all of the class lay out of use. 126 406 and 413 (behind) were both withdrawn and reinstated 8/82 and became the only two sets to survive past the end of the month, remaining in service until January of the following year.

DMU

Date: 1st August 1982

Set number: 126406

A six-car Class 126 formation in Largs station on August 1st, 1982, with Sc51036 closest. A Class 107 is stabled on the right with Sc51012 closest. John Carter.

DMU

Date: November 1982

Set number: 126406

126 406 has just passed Elderslie No2 Signal Box and is crossing the flyunder for the Kilmacolm Branch (the truncated G&SWR main line to Greenock Princes Pier). The unit would have hit top speed along this section and would shortly after have the brakes applied hard for the stop at Johnstone. The short, 7 minute journey from Paisley to Johnstone was one of my favourite regular DMU trips. Photo taken at the very end of Class 126 operation - probably end of November 1982. The Kilmacolm line was closed in January 1983. Andrew McConnell.

DMU

Date: 27th November 1982

Set number: 126406

A class 126 d.m.u. southbound on the Troon avoiding line at Troon on 27-11-82. Image by A. Wilson. For nearly 25 years, these B.R. Swindon built units were the mainstay of the routes from Glasgow to Ayrshire. This view shows a train probably from Stranraer to Glasgow avoiding the Troon stop on the loop line. This was the original main line and was superseded in 1892 when the loop was built, bringing the passenger station into the town. This avoiding line closed the day after this, on 28-11-1982, in preparation for re-signalling and electrification. Here, the old line has been integrated into the Fullarton golf course, and a footpath runs along the old trackbed. Gordon Thomson.
