Cowlairs South Junction

170 416 nears the end of its climb to Cowlairs with the 0915 to Edinburgh on 11 September. It is crossing the points at Cowlairs South, the junction for the cord to Sighthill West Junction used by services via Cumbernauld. Like other EGML junctions it had lighting installed last year. Railways had managed 180 years without 'street' lighting: let's see if it catches on.
