Found a few pics in google:Could you be more specific? Was it a loco hauled train or a DMU? As I'm not from Scotland and don't have much knowledge of the old Scottish region of BR if assume if a DMU it'd be a bubble car or a 153 (if they've ever operated in Scotland?)
Cool any ideas what the AC Car railbuses were used for? Were they actually in service or was the lines just quiet they could use these small trains?The first is a Class 27 hauling probably a mark I. 27s were used on Glasgow - Edinburgh push pull services .
The other is an AC cars Railbus built in the 50s for BR as a prototype for further DMUs
Lovely picture that, but it looks to me like the Mk 1 coach is a full parcels brake (or whatever the real ones are called - I'm more used to the N gauge one these days) so it's not got any seats, and won't have been a one coach train in passenger service. It might have been parked there before/after forming part of a West Highland rake.Found a few pics in google:
They were used in the early 60s on the Gleneagles to Crieff/Comrie line returning to Perth on the main line, but were not reliable. They were substituted by a Black 5/B1 or Standard tank with two coaches on those workings until mid '64. By then the coaling facilities had closed at Crieff and the locos work to Perth, at end of play, which is why ever photo of Crieff shows a wide variety of motive power. I think there's a couple of the railbuses at Keighley, with at least one available for work!
