Edinburgh Park: The nose has it. The Up Highland Chieftain passed Edinburgh Park on 4 February 2020 lending the only variety to ScotRail services round these parts. It's funny to think of Azumas in the timeless scenery of the Highland Main Line. Mind you, I suppose HSTs looked at least as incongruous when they first appeared there.
Dunblane: Running only 5 minutes behind time, the up Highland Chieftan does courageous battle with the â€œBeast from the Eastâ€ at Dunblane on 28th February 2018. The â€œsnowflakeâ€ generation of Class 170 and 158 DMUs on the other services was soon out of its depth, however, and within a few hours the system was at a standstill.
Avanti West Coast gets right behind this month's Rail Aid campaign, inviting bids for eagerly sought after Crewe Station signs, with all proceeds going to the Railway Children charity.
