314214 on the 1051 Glasgow Central-Glasgow Central via Cathcart
Noticed this morning the 0846 Glasgow Central - Newton service was a 6 car 314 as usual, but at least the rear unit looked like it was covered in graffiti. It was in Saltire livery though so it couldn't have been 314205. The graffiti levels in the last 6 months or so seems to be pretty bad for Scotrail, especially on the 314s!
Interesting you mention grafittied trains, thus far I haven't noticed it. Certainly the 314s are getting pretty grubby but I haven't seen one 'decorated' so far.
Apologies! We’re not quite there with the Juniper farewell tour just yet gentlemen!
There was a carmine and cream one graffitied , was scrubbed but can still see the evidence above the windows
May well have been the unit is saw this morning then. I didn't particularly look for signs of grafitti damage but noticed it looked pretty filthy.
One of the carmine and cream ones stored at Yoker shows signs of having had a considerable amount of graffiti removed at some point, there are still traces above the window line on that one.
I wonder if they aren't withdrawing anymore is because there is no more room at Yoker to store them.
That's 314 205 - proper grubby it looks.
Is that a different set to 314205?
I think so, because 205 is still in service I believe.
On Friday evening 205+210 (both Carmine) worked the 17.18 & 18.35 to Neilston, 209+214 (both SR) worked the 17.37 to Neilston & 216 (Carmine) worked the 18.15 Cathcart & 19.05 Neilston.
30th of June 2019
2M91 1709 Newton to Glasgow Central - 314216
314216, 314205 (with grafitti stains) and
314209 seen at Glasgow Central this afternoon.
314214 on the 17:18 Neilston (single set)
314205 on 17:12 Paisley Canal which is being delayed (uh oh)
314209 and 31420+ on the 17:37 Neilston
Odd that the 1712 Paisley Canal was a 314 and the 1718 Neilston was just a single set.
I think the 1718 Neilston was a single set because of the signalling problems earlier in the day... that would've been a comfortable journey.
So myself and a mate are heading up to Glasgow on Sunday for a few days, apart from the few 314s still out and about, are the remaining ones at Yoker? Is it worth getting out and going to any of the overbridges (Kelso St, Dyke Road)?
There are about 7 in traffic and I believe withdrawn ones are at both Shields and Yoker.
There are lots sitting in Yoker, the ones at Shields are hidden away.
Thanks @hexagon789 and @Scotrail314209. There's no vantage points at all for Shields either is there? Is it worth getting off at Yoker and taking a walk round or would a couple of passes on the train be sufficient?
Shields is a bit awkward, you can see some stuff from the street but the buildings hide a lot.
Saltire 314 in Shields Wheel Lathe
Carmine 314 on XX:42 Paisley Canal services
314216 on XX:12 Canal services
Canal line train is the best way to view Shields and Corkerhill. For Yoker, probably something that stops there is best.
Thanks, managed to see all at Yoker bar a 320 stuck right over the back of the yard nearest Yoker station (sorry, slightly off topic). Back on topic, just having what is a second ride 314 203 on the 1519 Newton - Glasgow Central, had it last night on the 2035 Glasgow Central - Neilston and 2128 back.
Have seen all but 201, 204, 206, 212, 213 and 214 but I know a few of those have already gone.
There’s a video uploaded on YouTube today of 215 leading 207 westbound through Glasgow Central Low Level. Anyone know when and why this movement happened? I had thought that the units had moved from Shields to Yoker separately at the end of May/start of June.
That's probably my video
and yes they were running this service:
Many thanks. I wonder why they were moved back to Shields?
Probably being kept serviceable for time being and probably an exam
Am I right in believing that there are only two carmine cream units still in service, one of them being 314216?
