In British Rail days, the Loco Inspection Point (L.I.P.) concept was developed to allow locomotives to be checked and fuelled away from their allocated main depot. Additionally, they had the facilities to replace smaller consumable items such as brake shoes, oil, water, etc. thus allowing greater availability of the fleet. Strathmore as a place doesn’t exist, but if it did, it would be in the area around Glasgow, therefore, seeing a mixture of passenger and freight locomotives as well as the occasional DMU and departmental stock.
