Class 27 27037 on a container train north to Glencairn. Engines will be exchanged at Glencairn Scholarsgate for the train to continue to Aberdeen

The Craigellachie container started life as a Triang Toys / Pedigree Prams container, but the decals were scratched and torn (on purchase second hand). The Craigellachie logo etc. was cut from a magazine and affixed.

When I lived in Leeds I saw several wagons with 'Manchester Liners' containers on them. I got the pictures of Manchester Liners off the internet.

The freightliner container and wagon was purchased from a model shop. The (second) Craigellachie container started life similar to the one in the first picture.

It is rather busy to operate when I am on my own. :lol: There would be less traffic if Dr Beeching hadn't closed the North British Station. :lol: :lol: but then it would be less fun. :D

The diesel shed was being run down prior to The Beeching Report believing it would close, hence the overgrown look. Then reprieve! The weeds etc. need clearing.

I am fascinated with most forms of transport. I like buses. :D
