Class 365 training underway for ScotRail drivers


SCOTRAIL has begun the process of training drivers on Class 365 EMUs that are expected to begin service between Edinburgh and Glasgow from July.

As of May 22, ScotRail had received four Class 365s – Nos. 365513/517/523/525 – which have undergone minor modifications for gauge clearance as well as the application of branding.

Unit No. 365513 has become the second ‘Networker’ to be outshopped in its new ScotRail disguise. On May 16, it is seen at Polmont with 2Z66, the 13.04 Glasgow Queen Street-Linlithgow loop driver-training duty. IAN LOTHIAN

Up to ten 365s could end up in Scotland temporarily, depending on progress in finding a solution for the Class 385 windscreen issues (see this section).
