From the evidence of its driving lights 170 473 appears to be heading towards the camera at Kirkcaldy station on 30 May, but in fact it is retreating from the Up line into the siding having arrived from the north and changed ends.  This unusual working is due to engineering works.  Had it been entering the siding from the Down line the shunt-ahead signal attached to the post would be showing two white lights allowing the driver to pass the main signal at danger.
