18-01-2017: Back to the Future

I had a run out to Gourock today to have a look at the new class 385 Hitatchi AT-200, number 385102,

Hitachi AT-200 emu, 385102 stabled at Gourock on 18th January 2017.

which has been doing overnight testing on the Gourock branch and which has been stabled in platform two at Gourock station during the day.

The unit currently has temporary connections on each end for testing purposes and many of the windows are still covered. The driving cars have the ScotRail saltire livery, however, the two centre cars (it’s a 4 car unit) are currently in base blue with no vinyls. Internally, the unit is just a shell with only test equipment contained in one of the centre cars. Also of note, from a spotters point of view is that the set number is on the side, not the front of the train. I think it’s quite a nice looking unit, but the driver doesn’t seem to have a very good field of vision, still, I suppose the class 380’s are already like that.
Later, I travelled to Glasgow Central and spend a bit of time there knocking off units, before heading to Partick to do the same, then out to Cumbernauld, where I saw a couple of freight services and two Tamper moves.
All in all, a good day, and I’m happy that I’ve now had a look at an AT-200. There’s every chance that these things will be here for the rest of my life!!
