20.05.10 Dunfermline Town 67008
One of two photos of class 67 worked passenger trains in different parts of the country. Since the 1990s a rapid decrease in locomotive hauled passenger trains on the UK rail network has seen much interest focused on workings like thee. Often due to medium to long term shortages of DMUs, some train operators have hired in stock and locos to cover. During 2010, two sets were hired by Scotrail to work rush hour trains into Edinburgh and back out. In the evening. More accurately, one morning and one evening took a full "orbit" of the Fife circle.
Seen here ready to depart Dunfermline Town on 20 May 2010 is 67008 on 2L69 Edinburgh to Cardenen.
