Another year, another "Royal Scotsman" season. An immaculate 66746 stands at Strathcarron with 1H80, the 08:33 Keith - Kyle "Royal Scotsman", the first trip of the 2017 season. The 2017 timings are virtually identical to last year's, a couple of small twe…

RM835 at Strathcarron Hotel

RM835 at Strathcarron Hotel
Owned by the Clydemaster Preservation group in Essex, AEC Routemaster RM835 (WLT 835) appears to have arrived at its destination, parked outside the Strathcarron Hotel. I very much doubt that the original blind featured Strathcarron.

158702 delayed at Strathcarron
158702 stands amidst the weeds in the Up platform at Strathcarron with 2H82, the 12:08 Kyle - Inverness. There was plenty time for pictures as the westbound train was about 15 minutes late. The smokers don't seem to mind a short delay.

Strathcarron half-barriers

Strathcarron half-barriers

Routemaster at Strathcarron

Routemaster at Strathcarron
Not something you see every day, at least not in Strathcarron.
AEC Routemaster RM835 (WLT 835) is owned by the Clydemaster Preservation group. The rear destination blind was probably used in service in Glasgow but the front one - who knows?

Looking west, over the A890 crossing at Strathcarron station. These new automatic half-barriers have recently replaced the ungated version and improved safety so much, that there are still no accidents.

The modernised crossing at Strathcarron, now with automatic half-barriers. Despite being situated on the main road, the crossing upgrade here seems much simpler (and cheaper) than those at Achnashellach and Duirinish. Without the maze of white lines and t…
