Dunkeld and Birnam

On 20 September 170 419 pulls into Dunkeld & Birnam with an Inverness to Edinburgh service . Note the low platforms and the steps which through careful driving will be matched up to the doors. Dunkeld was as far as you got for the first seven years of the Highland main line's existence, so the track would have come to an end about where it disappears in this picture. As well as an overall roof here there were extensive goods sidings (of which a fragment remains) running behind the station and towards Birnam, a site now covered by the A9. When this was the railhead for the Highlands they would have been rather busy.
