County March Summit [West Highland]

Gently does it ... a West Coast 37 heads south past one of the avalanches which blocked the line on the side of Beinn Odhar. The locomotive was a pilot checking the route for re-opening. It was about 16.30 and the sun was just beginning to set. This was the first 'train' after clearance of the snow by rail mounted cranes. The 19.50 Fort William - Edinburgh service which should have followed it was cancelled due to snow. View from the A82.
