Snowed in at Carstairs Junction, 1984
Class 87 Electric locomotives Nos 87005 and 87025 stand at the locomotive stabling point at Carstairs Junction in January 1985. The snowy conditions had rendered the overhead power cables unusable and trains were being diesel hauled, thus the electric locomotives were parked temporarily at this location until conditions improved.
