Here comes the train... and only 13 years late! An expectant crowd spots the class 24-hauled service from Inverness as it approaches Alness for the official reopening ceremony on 7 May 1973. The station had closed in 1960 when pre-Beeching cuts eliminated a swathe of wayside stations on the Far North line.
