Arkleston Junction: Two Black 5s emerge westbound from under the Arkleston Road Bridge, where they had been held at signals. The train nearest the camera is heading for Gourock while the other is on the Ayr line. At this time (Autumn 1966) there were 12 tracks at this point - up/down Renfrew, up/down Gourock, up/down Ayr, 2 down goods loops and 4 engineers sidings.

Arkleston Junction: The 15.00 service from Glasgow Central to Ayr westbound at Arkleston Junction on 31 August, passing the greenery on the left that marks the path of the old Renfrew Line. Track workers are at the ends of the goods loops perhaps preparing for the third track. The loops looked decidedly rusty today.
