SCOTRAIL CONVERTED a second diagram on its Edinburgh to Glasgow route to Class 385 operation from 28 August. This was followed on 10 September by the introduction of a pair of the class on the Edinburgh to North Berwick route.

The first pair of ‘385s’ entered service on the E&G route via Falkirk on 24 July. As modification work to the drivers’ windows on the ‘385s’ continues, Nos 385007/385103 became the second pair of units into service, enabling the xx.15 departures from both Edinburgh and Glasgow to become ‘385’ diagrams.
