Set number: 326

On 29th March 1986, 5 days after rail services returned to Bathgate, two Metro-Cammell 3 car sets, with 101326 leading, head away from the town with the 1203 service to Edinburgh. Initial duties on the line were shared between class 143 Pacer units and the indigenous 101s. Not surprisingly, the latter eventually took over all the services. Despite appearances this section was not double track, the line nearer the camera was for freight, primarily automotive traffic. The station was to close in 2010 when the through line to Airdrie was completed with a new station constructed nearby. Bruce Galloway.
