2014 turned out to be a fascinating year for Scottish Diesels with a come-back and major use of the 50 year old Class 37s on the Royal Scotsman and ballast trains, right through to the introduction of the brand new Class 68s on Intermodal trains. Add this to the Class 56 fuel trains, a whole host of railtours, charters, Network Rail trains, diesels in preservation and even a yellow HST to Oban and you have the Scottish Diesel year that was 2014!
