Cable ploughing with steam power on the Strathspey Railway in April 1986. Initially it had been planned to use a Ruston diesel to provide the traction and a special frame was built and attached to it. However on the first day the diesel failed and on day two Barclay 0-4-0ST 'Clyde' was fired up to tow the diesel as a second diesel also failed..
