Edinburgh Park: An eastbound HST in the colours of National Express East Coast approaching Edinburgh Park in the spring of 2009. The 0755 Inverness - Kings Cross 'Highland Chieftain' is passing between the piers which will eventually support the new tram flyover. The ECML franchise ended earlier than planned in November that year due to contractual and financial difficulties, following which services were taken over by the DoT operating as East Coast Trains. As for the tram project, it too experienced contractual and financial difficulties, as a result of which it would be more than 5 years before Edinburgh saw its first trams carrying fare-paying passengers.

Shettleston: This Breakdown and Recovery truck, donated by DBCargoUK to the National College for High Speed Rail in October 2018, was photographed in the Tesco Extra car park next to Shettleston station. The location of the encounter may seem surprising but Shettleston has a rail access point and across the road are depots for Network Rail and Torrent Trackside. The vehicle is used as part of the Engineering Apprenticeships at the College.

Bangkok Hua Lamphong: This train of six coaches was parked in one of Hua Lamphong's fourteen platforms. The stock is of mixed designs but several in a purple livery and all with drapes on the windows. I don't know what they are used for but the front coach seems to have a plentiful supply of air conditioning. The station itself is scheduled to close in the near future for conversion to a museum. Services will be transferred to Bang Sue Central Station. Photo by Mark Edwards.
