Train 09.15 1958 171015 4592 Mercury       06.40 Inverness-Wick/Thurso

Taking a break from work on the lighting for Kyle of Sutherland, I updated one of my early train pictures. The first north-bound passenger of the day is calling at Culrain about nine-fifteen sometime in 1958, on what looks like a hazy start to the day.

This lengthy train includes several parcels vehicles, and the ex-GWR Siphon G was not unusual at this time (thanks Allan and Roger for the loan of this vehicle). Page 155 of Gavin Morrison’s book “Scottish Railways Then and Now” shows a similar train entering Brora in 1957.
