GW: Shields Depot, Glasgow

SI: Scotrail 'Interim' - Thameslink pale grey base livery with ScotRail branding & dark blue doors.

The first unit to arrive in Scotland was 365523 which was brought by road on four lorrys from Ely to KBRS Springburn on Sunday 22nd April 2018.

The next 2 units (513 & 517) also arrived by road.

The 3rd unit, 365525 was hauled north via Carlisle by 57303, arriving at Springburn on 11th May 2018.

The class entered service with Scotrail on Saturday 23rd June 2018 with 365517+365537 the first to run in passenger service. The pair operated 1R42 22:30 Glasgow Queen Street - Edinburgh Waverley, returning with 1R49 23:30 Edinburgh Waverley - Glasgow Queen Street.

On their introduction, the class saw exclusive use on the Edinburgh & Glasgow line, via Falkirk High - normally operating in pairs as in 8-car formations.

From December 2018, the Class 365 units moved to operate services between Edinburgh and Dunblane in 4-car formation.

The last day in passenger service for ScotRail was Tuesday 12th March 2019. Due to failures during the morning peak, 365521 is thought to have been the only 365 in use for the full day.
