Over the years Scotland has seen a huge variety of loco classes work passenger trains day and night, Winter and Summer. Most of us will have done a week’s “Freedom” or six sampling that magic. Furthermore this continues in a limited fashion with sleeper power variety.
With the help of “Leighton Lists” contributors but particulary messrs Dave Spencer, “TC”, Mike Lewis and Jim Burton this is an attempt to record for posterity both the classes and individual locos that have worked a passenger train North of the border.
Photos are included to bring the text to life a bit more. There are still many classes to complete and many gaps which we would welcome contributions! Enjoy the memories!!
