    What a difference a year makes, I think I've posted these elsewhere on the forum but they may be of interest on here. First shot is MP71 near Corrour with 44871 on the first runpast of the day under clear skies and no wind, unheard of on Rannoch...

    That crowd beats even the photters on the first day in May 84. Not that long ago the hillside would be quiet - this is 2015. Back in the day there was no hillside footpath to make it easier for the crowds. [ATTACH]

    With shots from the Charters and the Glasgow line having been included this thread has developed into a general West Highland showcase so here is one from the very early days of steam returning to the Mallaig line. 673 Maude struggles up the bank...

    Some superb quality photography over the last few days on here. It feels like a hardback book's contents have escaped onto Nat Pres.

    I think one of the highlights of the Jacobite years both lineside and on the train has been experiencing locomotive types that worked the line in steam days. B1s did make it to Mallaig occasionally. A shame theres no K2 or J37, [ATTACH]...

    Actually no. They a bringing a lot of pleasure to members right here and given the negativity exhibited earlier its a great antidote. I'd like to see them remain, but I only speak for myself ATM.

    If they were in the photography section I wouldn't have seen and enjoyed them, I'm not a photographer so I don't go to the section, I've nothing to contribute. IMO they are not doing any harm where they are

    Just caught up with this thread. Anyone remember that misty day in 2012. There are many days when the top of Ben Nevis is covered in cloud, this was the only time I’ve known when the summit was clear but you couldn’t see the bottom. K1 passing...
