Dalmeny: A Fife local comes off the bridge and into Dalmeny - to pick up me. Electrification of Fife services is a long-term aim. I don't know about you but I find the prospect of live wires across the Forth Bridge alarming - in more ways than one.

Carlisle Durranhill Shed: Panorama showing the wide open spaces on the eastern approach to Carlisle in February 2007, much changed since the heydey of the railways. Off to the left stood the Midland's Durranhill shed, with a large goods yard beyond and Petterill Bridge goods station in the left background. To the right was the NER goods yard, then London Road (goods) station, with the NER locomotive shed alongside. The scrubland in the centre, separating the parallel Midland (on which the DMU is approaching) and NE routes, was also occupied by sidings. Former railway land is gradually being reclaimed for commercial use, with the haulage company in the left background located on what is now Brunel Way, part of Carlisle's Durranhill Industrial Estate.
