Class 37 No. 6839 passes Niddrie West signal box and takes the line to Niddrie South with a rake of empty 16t mineral wagons in October 1970. The train is thought to be the 10.15 Mossend - Millerhill Yard. It is definitely not the 11.38 Ravenscraig No. 2 to Carlisle Yard which reported as 8M16. In all probability the loco had been to Carlisle and back the previous day and nobody had changed the reporting number for this trip.
