73968 5Z25 CBC 28/01/17
Engineering work meant the southbound Aberdeen sleeper portion starting from Dundee on Sunday 29th January 2017. Having worked north to Aberdeen on the 28th, the stock returned ECS to Polmadie as a 5Z25 0915 departure. It is seen here passing Coatbridge Central, in sleet, with 73968 leading 66733. This was at the time when the sleepers were being worked by class 66s, with 73/9s only providing ETH. No need for ETH on the ECS, so no need for a complicated run round and good to see the 73 leading.
