158701 departs Dingwall on a Sunday

158701 departs Dingwall on a Sunday
158701 at Dingwall with 2H82, the 10:34(SuO) Kyle - Inverness. Sunday services are a relatively new occurrence on the Kyle line. Although occasional excursions had been run on the Sabbath, the first scheduled Sunday passenger service did not leave Inverness until 10th July 1983. Inverness guard Iain Leitch was accompanied on the train by a couple of plain-clothes BTP officers and about 250 merrymakers and the journey passed off without incident. Sadly, the shops in Kyle missed the opportunity by remaining firmly closed but the pubs and hotels did a roaring trade. Nowadays, two return services run on summer Sundays, with one continuing all year round.
