158711 at Achnasheen
Achnasheen station - looking towards Garve. 158711 sits in the Up platform with 2H80, the 06:21 Kyle -Inverness. In the Down platform 158701 waits with 2Z89, the 06:12 Inverness - Kyle. As the headcode suggests, this was not an 'ordinary' service train. From 23rd January 2012, Scotrail operated a 'school special' to transport pupils from Strathcarron to Plockton High School.
A major landslide blocked the A890 near the rockfall shelter at Attadale, leading to transport chaos. Apart from the extra train, a ferry was chartered to operate between North Strome and Stromeferry. The extra train ran until mid-March, although it still appears in the WTT today.
