Montfode Fuel Depot Sidings

On a wet and dismal Saturday morning DB 66 206 is stationary at the former Montfode Fuel Depot Sidings with a materials train in connection with weekend track relaying in the Stevenston and Saltcoats area. There are two stop markers on the track just in front of the locomotive. A second train hauled by Freightliner 66 544 appeared at the rear, uncoupled from its own train and moved forward to couple to the first train. These are the first rail movements on the bi-directional electrified line north of Ardrossan since 5th February 2021.
