No, not the long-haul express freight to the Midland Region which the headcode might imply, but rather the shorter than usual 16.10 Invergordon-Inverness trip freight heading south on 24th October 1972. Standing out in the consist are four wagons of aluminium blocks from the smelter, four alumina hoppers for Fort William via Cadder Yard (330 miles!), plus two Speedfreight containers and two tank containers from the Invergordon Distillery.
