Things starting to gear up near to Queen Street.
The station and line from Cowlairs will be closed from 20th this month for 20, yes twenty weeks.
All to do with EGIP (Edinburgh-Glasgow) Improvement. Electrification of the Line.
TXM Moving in plant from 16th
I am based in the West so cant be of great help to you for the East side, ie Falkirk to Edinburgh & surrounding area.
If going by train, as I guess you are I suggest that you take the stoppers as you will have a better chance to get things.
Shutter speed 640 min 50mm or less
Queen Street to Croy
Just over 1 mile from the station on LEFT KEPPOCHHILL RD
Right across from that a new Compound going in. No Plant been seen on there as to Friday last week
CHANGE TO THE RIGHT ASAP Cowlairs NR Depot
Also COWLAIRS AP Story, Quattro & Aspin been in there
Not far after that is the old Eastfield MPD now a DMU Depot
BISHOPBRIGGS STATION 1st Stop (Nothing There Keep on Train)
CADDER YARD AGAIN ON RIGHT HAND SIDE
Plenty of stuff on there
Friday the ABC Wiring Train, in the Middle of the yard but the 1st stuff you will see is some SRS units UK08SRS being 1 of them, QTS Chipper, TRAC SV201, AB2000 NAM at the other end of the yard were 3 Story units and some trailers. Probably more stuff came in over the weekend.
Next station Lenzie. Don't get of.
RHS again about 1/2 mile Lenzie AP just a small one but has had 3 RRV's and 4-5 trailers on sometimes
After that CHANGE TO LEFT HAND SIDE
About 2miles is GARTSHORE CEMENT WORKS
Last week Had 4xStory 1xAspin 1xQuattro RRV's 3xTRAC Platforms and 6xTraillers
Can give some more and will do
Give me a call on mobile
07887 662 740

Also other AP's round about and a couple of depots in the Glasgow area that can be seen from the train or are within walking distance from a station

The CARS Easter Aberdeen trip passed a yard at Castlecary, Cumbernauld, visible from the M80 on 28th March 2016 - this held four unidentified R/R Access Platforms and an unidentified R/R excavator - any help in identifying these would be most appreciated
