43143 Arbroath 1 September 2018

43143 passes the 10 in gauge Kerr's Miniature Railway at Arbroath on 1 September 2018 with the 2W93 15:08 Dundee to Aberdeen ScotRail driver training special. 43036 brings up the rear. This just happened to pass in a few minutes worth of sunshine, virtually the only time the sun appeared from behind the clouds all day! After over four decades of hard work on the Western Region, the locos will now have an easier time of it in Scotland, with no 125mph running, and only four or five coaches per train. When the trains enter passenger service, they will feature refurbished coaches with power operating sliding doors, and in the same livery as the power cars. This set features unrefurbished coaches, still in the First Great Western blue colour scheme.
