Forres [2nd]

A view of the former triangular platform layout at Forres, taken from the rear of an Inverness-Aberdeen DMU on 2nd May 1968. The redundant platform to the left formerly served passenger workings from the Elgin direction to Aviemore via Dava and Grantown, the line beside it probably last being used for freight traffic prior to 1965 closure. The layout at Forres - with just a single platform - has remained virtually unchanged since then, despite regularly-voiced proposals to shift the crossing loop (the start of which can be seen in the centre-right of the photo) back into the station.
