7. Other Far North Trains

I plan to show here photographs of Far North trains not normally seen at Culrain, or only infrequently, which might form part of an exhibition sequence for the layout. Such as this train:

Train Thurso Mixed 171104 4599       (Loco 41245 courtesy of Allan Smith)

1959/1960 Thurso Branch Mixed with LMS Ivatt 2-6-2T in lieu of Stanier 3P

Meanwhile, here’s an unusual visitor, minus smoke box number plate and shed plate, spotted in the yard at Culrain one summer’s afternoon in 1955.

Unusual Visitor 4481 170426

Other trains may include:

1955 Dornoch Branch Mixed (HR steam hauled)

1957 Tain Local (CR Pickersgill steam hauled)

1960 Dornoch Branch Mixed (GWR steam hauled)

1962 Thurso Branch Mixed (diesel hauled)

Fish train and Lairg Sales Sheep train
