SRPS Railtour returning from Dufftown waits on the mainline for the service train to pass it on the loop below Dyce Signal Box. The reason for this unusual move may have been that the railtour train was too long for the loop so it had to wait on the mainline. The track of the Buchan Line is visible to the left of and behind the box; this line is another candidate for reopening in the 2020s.
The platforms were then still disused-the station re-opened 4 years later.
