Pollokshields at Gower St... I hate trains so it's a pretty wild guess lol

Is that a pendolino on that line? If so... wheres it going? Paisley Canal?
Fjord

Yes, but that's as far as it goes. It uses Shields Loop to turn the unit coming from Polmadie to Glasgow Central and vice versa so that the First Class portion is always at the London end (front) on departing Glasgow. This was also done when the trains were loco hauled.
Stuball

Ahh right.... that makes sense. More sense than Paisley Canal being served by state-of-the-art trains with first class compartments :)
