Snow at Kingussie

I stopped off at Kingussie on my way home from a photographic session with Perth MRC last Saturday (Jan 24th 2015) in time for the north-bound Highland Chieftain service (Kings Cross – Inverness). The service is one of the longest in the UK today at 581 miles which takes a touch over 8 hours to run in the north-bound direction. Despite the poor weather, the train on this particularly cold winter evening was more or less on time with No. 43 302 the leading power car.

The conditions were pretty spectacular for night-time photography, so I spent an additional ten minutes or so taking some winter evening shots of the station and signal box – long exposure at 10 to 15 seconds at F10 with the camera setting on ISO 200 and the noise reduction setting active.
