I am going miss seeing the Class 365s trains in Scotland. Since Scotrail is replacing, them all with the new Hitachi Class385 trains, in the next number of weeks.

Glasgow Central railway station is the busiest in Scotland. But it happens to be, the one I use the least! Mainly due to fast, you can’t get many direct train to it from Peterborough any more. Like you could under the GNER days! Which is one, of the main reasons, I started mainly driving to/from Scotland and stopped using the train!

LNER, is doing a way better job than both National Express East Coast and Virgin Trains East Coast, ever did! But, I still would rate GNER has the best railway franchise the UK ever had!

I know that most people will not think the same… But I, for one think that Stirling railway station, looks much better, since electrification. It makes it feel, more like a main railway station. Which of course it is, since you can get trains to Aberdeen, Alloa, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and even London!

But it’s going to take me a while getting use to, using a Class 365 running to/from Stirling. Since I’am so use to seeing, them run between London King’s Cross and Peterborough, in the past.

I also for one, think that ScotRail are doing a great job! So nice to see, some of the work, they have and Network Rail, have been doing start, to pay off!

I can now tick, North Berwick railway station off my list!

I also can’t believe, just how nice North Berwick is! I will be back again, but during the summer! It was, a wee bit on the cold side!

I’am so happy, yes maybe I need to get more! At long last, I’ve been on a Class 385 train. The last number of times, I’ve been in Scotland they have been withdrawn, from service for a number of reasons!

Got say, that I do really like them! Just hope, next time, I get to do a longer journey, since I only went from North Berwick to Edinburgh Waverley. So need to try them out on the Glasgow-Edinburgh route.
