Clapped-out train causes double breakdowns on Inverclyde line [Greenock Telegraph]





Date: 11/03/2018

A CLAPPED-out old train was responsible for two breakdowns on the Inverclyde rail line in the space of three days. One of the 1970s Class 314 models suffered a power failure on Monday afternoon at Bishopton and again on Wednesday evening at Woodhall, causing delays and cancellations to services. Operators ScotRail have confirmed that it was the same train involved on both occasions and a recurrence of the same fault. The old rolling stock has been heavily criticised by local passengers for not being up to scratch, especially for having no toilets, wireless internet and a lack of comfortable heating.
