170 452 approaches the Edinburgh-bound platfrom at Falkirk High on 15 June.  There^s a new shelter on the other platform.  It seems to have been designed by someone who thinks we need to challenge our assumptions about the appearance - and function - of a shelter.  Clearly they are never going to have to use it.

The time to celebrate the E&G will be later in the year when our new faster longer greener trains are in service.

Meanwhile for the 175th anniversary it might be appropriate to recall what happened on 18 February 1992 when Viscount Whitelaw arriving behind 60009 temporarily renumbered as 60004 unveiled this sculpture by George Wylie at Falkirk High and guests received these slate coasters bearing the E&G coat of arms.
