So you're not saying its defintiely not Viva then?
Unless Vivarail (or some other organisation) has quietly purchased the 314 coaches, one would presume that Angel Trains (the rolling stock owner) has put them there. Vivarail is just one of the numerous railway companies that rents floor and/or siding space at the site.

But weren't ScotRail the outright owner of the Class 314s after the HST Mk3 delivery shambles?

Trying to remember which way they moved to Yoker CS

think 209 let 216 with 210 on rear, so guessing it will be 210 going tomorrow

What on earth are they doing with the pantograph coaches at Long Marston? Seems bizarre that they're going down there instead of the scrapyards

Gosh I do not know what’s happening I doubt any are being saved for Preservation well unless someone can save the Eastleigh one they’re is very little hope. They’re could be hope in the Eastleigh one but unlikely

It’s extremely unlikely that a 314 will be preserved now. I have a feeling that 204 will be sent for scrap at last soon

Yeah I asked ScotRail if any were being preserved on twitter on 18th of December this was after the tour had finished and they said "There are No Plans Chris" I think that's what they said.
