The 10-coach RCTS (West Riding Branch) Three Summits Tour from Leeds City, photographed near Muirkirk on 30 June 1963. Locomotives 103+57581 had taken over the train from 46255 City of Hereford at Carstairs see image 22675 and hauled it as far as Auchinleck, where 60004 William Whitelaw took charge of the proceedings. The branch was singled in 1956, thus the apparent wrong line working. The location is on the approach to Wellwood.
