Set number: 107428

107 428 (51988) and 107 425 in Glasgow Central circa 1987. The station had recently been stone-cleaned and enhanced with the addition of evergreen bushes on the platforms, conveniently marking the position of "Front train beyond this point". Andrew McConnell.

DMU

Date: 6th June 1989

Set number: 107728

Set 107728 (presumably 51988 + 59786 + 52013) after terminating in North Berwick station with the 17:38 from Edinburgh on June 6, 1989. The banner proclaims 'ScotRail Sprinter Service starts Mon. 15th May". Hamish Stevenson.

DMU

Date: 22nd August 1989

Set number: 107728

107728 (presumably 51988 + 59786 + 52013) departing Kilmarnock with the 12:54 to Glasgow Central, 22-08-89. Classic d.m.u. traction for the Killie - Glasgow service, not long before the Sprinters took over. The line from here to Barrhead (with a loop at Lugton) was stupidly singled in 1974. It was re-doubled between Stewarton and Lugton in 2008 / 09 and now a half hourly service to operates from Kilmarnock to Glasgow. The former line to Dalry passed under the bridge on the left. Gordon Thomson.
