Braehead Viaduct

The 0944 Glasgow - Inverness service, unusally a Class 158 unit and diverted to start from Glasgow Central due to the Queen Street High Level Tunnel works, is seen passing over the Bargeddie bridges just over a year after the M8 viaduct opened. The temporary embankments used in construction have long gone and the carriageways of the new M8 extension now run under the viaduct. The distinctive steelwork of the beginning of older 'Cutty Sark' bridge can just be seen on the left above the earthworks of the A8 realignment now under construction.
