Class 31s come to town.

31 601 pauses at Nairn for a token to Forres with the ‘Structure Gauging Train’ on the evening of 5th March 2009. The train runs primarily at night so the special light measurement instrumentation can be used. For the record, 31 602 brought up the rear of the train.

Interesting redeployment of an former ScotRail and Anglia DBSO… The istrumentation vehicle is next in the rake. The train only remained stationary for a few minutes, offering limited time for long exposure photography.

I followed it to Forres where it met a west bound Inverness service. Another shot was obtained at the old crossing gates.

A few seconds for a token exchange and then 31 601 was on its way to Aberdeen.
