SRL No 96 A4 Class No 60007 near Gleneagles with the 5.30 pm Glasgow-Aberdeen service 20th May 1965

One of the A4's that made it into preservation we find Gresley A4 No 60007 "Sir Nigel Gresley' on the 3hr Glasgow Buchanan St-Aberdeen express seen here near Gleneagles 20th May 1965. Moved north of the border after the closure of 34A Kings Cross, this A4 and others found a reprieve north of the border. On withdrawal in February 1966 the A4 would have gone to the scrapyard had the A4 Preservation Society not raised the funds to buy the locomotive from BR. No 60007 is near the end of its latest overhaul and all being well will be seen on the main line very soon.
