Introduced by British Railways in 1952, this sleeping car service ran in connections with sailings to and from Larne Harbour. Nicknamed “The Paddy” the train made its journey to Stranraer Harbour via Dumfries and Newton Stewart. However, when this line closed it was diverted via Ayr adding some sixty miles to the journey. This service was the only London Midland Region train to ever carry a green headboard. The serviced ceased in April 1966
