The north end of Inverurie station on 26 March 1959 sees J36 0-6-0 no 65303 engaged in manoeuvres in conjunction with Barclay no D2414 prior to taking out a freight. The Barclay (diesel mechanical) shunter, which entered service early in 1959, has no coupling rods and looks to be in course of delivery.

The early 1980s was an interesting period on the Aberdeen - Inverness line. The Swindon DMUs had been replaced with refurbished Mark 1 stock, usually hauled by the likes of 27006 (or 27008?) as in this view. Behind the trees can be seen the remains of Inverurie Loco Works (now a Tesco). Some other works buildings do still remain, namely the workshops in the distance above the coaches, albeit in a poor state.
