Was I seeing something??
« on: March 02, 2019, 09:53:29 AM »
On the M80 on way to a job in Stirling on Tuesday morning, as I was approaching the Castlecary Viaduct.
A class 320 emu and a class 158 dmu were hitched together forming a 5 car unit.
Is this normal as hadn't seen before.
Don't know if was a stock move or was in service.

I cannot find anything for 26 February that matches this, no Class 320 on the route
The nearest I can find are a few Class 170 and Class 158 pairings
What time and which direction?

Was Glasgow bound, 07.30-07.45 am.
Yes think your right as have seen the 170/158 pairings before.
Never thought a emu and dmu could couple together.

They can but it is extremely rare, in most cases would usually require a translator vehicle

I thought it was like with different breeds of dog: they can, but they generally prefer not to.
