SLS/RCTS: Scottish Rail Tour 14/6/62
This was the first day of this mammoth 10 day tour of Scotland and depicted here is Stanier 'Black 5' no. 44978 during an eight minute stop at Achnasheen on the Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh line. Heaven knows what that object is balanced on the platform edge in the foreground. I first thought that it was a blemish until I noticed that the shadow underneath it matches that of the rest of the picture.
