First Scotrail Class 170 Turbostar Inverness

The Class 170 "Turbostar" is a diesel multiple unit (DMU) built by Bombardier Transportation (previously ADtranz) at their Derby Litchurch Lane Works, England. This has become the most popular type of DMU built since the privatisation of Britain's railways, with 122 units built. See the Turbostar article for detailed information.

ScotRail (since taken over by First Group and renamed First ScotRail) introduced the Turbostar in 1999 to complement its fleet of Class 158 "Express Sprinter" DMUs. "Turbostar" Class 170s are used mainly on the Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Queen Street Express route (with two 3-car sets run on peak services), but are also common on the routes from Edinburgh to Bathgate,Aberdeen and Inverness as well as the Fife Circle. In addition, they are often used in conjunction with Class 158 sets on the Edinburgh Crossrail route between Newcraighall and Dunblane. The vast majority of sets carry First Class accommodation, and a buffet trolley operates on many peak-time services. In addition, several Class 170s carry the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport livery and operate suburban services in the Glasgow area
