The original 'Blue Train' unit No.303001 rolls into Partick on a Motherwell service on 24th March 1986. The British Rail Class 303 electric multiple units, also known as "Blue Train" units, sporting a striking Caledonian blue livery, were introduced in 1960 for the electrification of the North Clyde and the Cathcart Circle lines in Strathclyde. They were initially classified as AM3 units before the introduction of the TOPS classification system, and were the dominant EMU on the Glasgow suburban railway network for over 25 years before being progressively phased out by newer rolling stock. The final units were withdrawn from service in 2002. ©Gordon Edgar/Rail Photoprints
