Locos and sunshine in the Highlands…

A fair number of locomotives passed through the Inverness area on Monday thanks to engineeriong work and the Royal Scotsman. Interestingly enough, Class 37s dominated the scene, a little like old times. Other locomotives present included the resident Class 08 shunter, the Class 67, 67 021,  which brought the Sleeper from Edinburgh and a DRS Class 68 which turned up on the daily intermodal service.

Class 68DRS Class 68 006 has just crossed the Nairn Viaduct at Culloden with the southbound intermodal.

I have to admit that the Class 68 is an impressive-looking machine.

A brace of Class 37s run south with the Kyle-Aviemore leg of the Royal Scotsman. West Coast Railways Class 37 No. 37 685 leads No. 37 516 over the Nairn Viaduct.

DRS 37s

The second pair of Class 37s in the area included a Class 37/0, No. 37 218 which worked with No. 37 602  on a rake of ‘Autoballaster’ wagons. All on a beautifully sunny day in the Highlands.
