The double headed Class 50 powered Anglo-Scottish expresses had only been in operation for three weeks and were no doubt the main reasons for visiting Carstairs on Spring Bank Holiday Saturday 1970 - although the holiday didn't apply in Scotland there was probably the expectation of some extra trains from the south as well. While a number of Class 50 pairings were seen, only the 10.05 Euston - Glasgow Central, with Nos. D429 and D409 in charge, managed to put in an appearance in sunshine.
