37401 drags the Northern Belle stock into Platform 1 at Kyle, ready to form 1Z28, the 16:57 Kyle - Aberdeen.
The immaculate 'Baggage Car' 92904 (originally M80867) is the only BR Mk1 Gangwayed Brake Van (BG) with an exemption to current Network Rail rules, allowing it to travel immediately behind the loco of a passenger service on the main line. The vehicle has received various safety modifications over the years.
For many years, BR(ScR) marshalled the 3-coach Kyle services with one of these vans in the centre of the train, but never polished to a shine like this.
The Up loop and West siding looked rather better in BR days though.
