Helmsdale: The Helmsdale Painter. A view looking east of Helmsdale station in 1989. If you have a copy of 'Scotland's Stations: A travellers' Guide' turn to page 88 (Helmsdale) to find a photograph of a painter at the station. I had a copy of this book with me when I took this photograph and, on enquiring, the painter confirmed this was himself many years earlier. The conversation then turned to the shed and days past.

Newtongrange: A Sunday morning service on the Borders line calls at Newtongrange on May Day 2016. The builings, headgear and boiler house chimney of Lady Victoria Colliery (now the Scottish Mining Museum) stand in the background. The tree covered hill immediately beyond the car park is the remains of the colliery waste bing. Like its neighbour a mile and a half to the south, the bing suffered intermittently from smouldering fires producing noxious fumes [see image 54902] which led to action being taken during the late 1980s/early 1990s to remedy the problem permanently (including removal of much of the spoil).
