A Wee Update

Cadder Yard: A HST servicing depot is to be constructed in two stages on the Down Yard, connected to the Down Arrival/Down Departure Line. The access tracks and Cadder Down Yard will be temporarily removed during the work. Stage 1 includes two reception roads (Roads 1 & 2), Controlled Emission Toilet facilities, a refuelling area, an extended headshunt (Road '0') at the Glasgow (west) end

and Depot Roads 4-6 at the east end. It is due to be ready for Dec 2020 for planned timetable changes. Stage 2, due in May 2021, adds Roads 3,7&8. (Roads 3-8 serve three double sided cleaning platforms.)

Thanks to a friends sending Branch Line News

This work has already started

What I could see from distance. Had to use a 300mm tele lens

21/06/2020 there was a Story Colmar Unit and as far as I could see RRB01 with a VAC module unit fitted were parked up Day Time and being a Sunday

So anyone traveling by train between Lenzie & Bishopbriggs may have something to see

Hopefully the new normal will allow more to come up here

Unfortunately not too many can make it up here to Scotland BUT the natives are Friendly
