158701 Forteviot 12 April 2004

The barriers on the level crossing in the background are just lifting again after the passage of 158701 with the 10:08 Glasgow Queen Street to Inverness ScotRail service on 12 April 2004. The location is Forteviot, in the wide valley of the River Earn, between Gleneagles and Perth. 158701 was the first unit of this large class to enter service, and the only one to do so in the 1980s, being delivered from the BREL works at Derby in October 1989.
