27th November 1982

Set: 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 This was the original main line and was superseded in 1892 when the loop was built, bringing the passenger station into the town.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.
