A Glaswegian barber accidentally kills his employer

This Scottish black comedy has a few railway scenes, the most notable of which is a glimpse of Glasgow Central station. Visible here are a trio of ScotRail Class 156 ‘Sprinter’ DMU’s, that are joined on this occasion by a pair of Class 314 EMU’s and, more unusually, a Trans-Pennine Class 350 ‘Desiro’ EMU. There is also a couple of shots of the main building to Bridgeton station and a middle distance shot of the bridge across the River Clyde with a Class 380 EMU crossing. The film is based on the 1999 novel The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson by Douglas Lindsay.

Robert Carlyle is walking towards his barbers shop in Bridgeton Cross. This is looking out of the door to the shop and behind him is the main building of Bridgeton station.
On show from right to left in this excellent overview of Glasgow Central are the following trains: a Class 314 EMU in ScotRail blue, a similarly-liveried Class 156 DMU with a Class 314 EMU behind in the older Strathclyde PTE red and cream, another pair of ScotRail blue Class 156 DMU’s, and a Trans-Pennine Class 350 ‘Desiro’ EMU.
There are in fact three bridges in this shot of the Upper Harbour of the River Clyde. The nearest is the delightful South Portland Street Suspension Bridge. The concrete one in the centre is Glasgow Bridge, and the one at the top is the Clyde Bridge outside Glasgow Central station. Crossing the rail bridge is a Siemens-built Class 380 EMU.
