ScotRail train at Dalmuir
A ScotRail train at Dalmuir station, in the north-western outskirts of Glasgow.

The railway here is electrified using overhead wires. Most trains serving Dalmuir are electric. However, this train is a diesel multiple unit which is heading into Glasgow from Mallaig, an end-to-end journey of more than 5 hours along Scotland's West Highland Line.
Dalmuir railway station
Dalmuir is a fairly large, five platform interchange station which is served by the Argyle Line, North Clyde Line and West Highland Line. There are four through platforms serving these lines plus a terminal platform (Platform 5) which is on the Yoker line. A new footbridge was installed in late 2010, providing wheelchair access between the platforms.
West Highland Line
The West Highland Line is considered the most scenic railway line in Britain, linking the ports of Mallaig and Oban on the west coast of Scotland to Glasgow.
