Once displaced from top link express work from King's Cross, a small number of A4 class locos were transferred to Scotland to work between Glasgow and Aberdeen. In 1965 60019 was photographed at Aberdeen ready to depart for Glasgow Buchanan Street. Buchanan Street has gone, but 'Bittern' still exists.
