158786 & 170418 Gleneagles 6 July 2008

How's this for a livery off the beaten track. Over 400 miles from its former haunts, 158786 is still sporting full South West Trains livery, complete with branding as it approaches Gleneagles with the 08:41 Glasgow Queen Street to Aberdeen First ScotRail service on 6 July 2008, in the company of more appropriately liveried 170418. ScotRail acquired two former South West Trains Class 158s in 2007, SWT having earlier acquired them from Central Trains. It is unusual for transferred units to retain their former operator's name, even if the livery remains unaltered, so perhaps residents of the Highlands think this refers to south west Scotland!
