The Railway Society of Scotland charter DMU passing through Coupar Angus. The whitewashed building in the background is the Strathmore Hotel (known as 'The Whitehouse' to local railwaymen who allegedly visited it from time to time) with the Tolbooth steeple on the left of the picture. The trackbed now forms part of the Coupar Angus bypass and the bracketed signal gantry in the right background now controls access to the SRPS station at Boness. Photographed in October 1968 a year after official closure to passengers, which occurred on 4 September 1967.
