Loch nan Uamh Viaduct

5407 returning to Fort William on 28 May 1984. Note the fire under the arch. This came from J36 'Maude', which, on its travels that day, managed to set fire to much of the lineside, destroying the track circuits see image 19781. The result of this was that tokens had to be transported by taxi, the local fire brigade had a screaming fit and that night's sleeper eventually left Fort William two hours late. A memorable and exciting day for all concerned! The train is seen here passing east over the Loch nan Uamh viaduct between Arisaig and Beasdale.
