The paid staff have continued with fishplate oiling completing to Broomhill and started from Boat of Garten towards Aviemore. Today a good squad of us met at Boat of Garten to sign on and collect the tools.
Having stabled overnight the Royal Scotsman, hauled by our class 31 diesel, was awaiting the arrival of our Steam service, so it can continue on its tour of Scotland by accessing the mainline railway at Aviemore,
where the GBRf Class 66 is stabled overnight. (Above good photo was actually taken last week by Mike Tough)
Anyway I digress, we started at Kinchurdy Level Crossing after welcoming Roger (far left) a new Volunteer and chatting to Dave (far right) from the PWay on East Lancs Railway who is on his yearly holiday in the Highlands, with a day or two spent with us.
Progress was so good that by the end of the day, I had miscounted the quarter mile posts and we actually completed one and a quarter miles, which must be an all time record!
Well done and thank you Guys.
