Carron Water Bridge [West Carmont]: On a very nice April day, I took a walk (4.74 miles) out to Bridge 325, site of the fatal rail crash last year. The 14:52 out of Aberdeen, Azuma set number 800113, is passing the location, scene of so much rebuilding work.
Stuttgart Hbf: DB class 218 Diesel Hydraulic 218 - 812 being used as station pilot.
Huntly: Colas 70810, on diverted china clay tanks, held at Huntly station to allow a passenger train to overtake on 26th October 2020.
Fimber Halt: Looking north across the route of the level crossing over the Wetwang to Malton Road to the Fimber Gatehouse situated immediately south of the site of the former Sledmere & Fimber Station which was sited in what is now the wooded area beyond the gatehouse. The line then crossed the Sledmere to Fridaythorpe Road just after leaving the station heading towards York.
Haymarket: I had noticed that the clock on the front of Haymarket station had stopped but the solution seems a bit drastic. I'd say most Edinburgensians, if asked to picture a clock at Haymarket, would have in mind the war memorial clock tower, which is within sight of here. Looks like we are in for a fine display of buddleia this summer.
Boat of Garten: View from class 117 DMU with a Strathspey Railway service from Aviemore to Broomhill arriving at Boat of Garten, on 24th February 2018. An hour or two earlier, my friends and I had been to the summit of the Cairngorm Mountain Railway and, as far as the eye could see, there was nothing but snow, an awesome sight. Yet here at Boat of Garten there was none at all though it was bitterly cold.
Edinburgh Waverley: Vans, perhaps belonging to a Motorail service, being shunted at the east end of Edinburgh Waverley by Black 5 45053 in June 1966.
Witton Gilbert: Witton Gilbert station was over a mile from the village of that name and actually almost in Langley Park. The station, and the Lanchester Valley line from Consett to Durham, closed to passengers in 1939 but goods trains passed through for a further twenty seven years before full closure. This view looks along the old line in the direction of Durham from the site of the level crossing. Originally built as a single line, when it was doubled the goods yard was opposite the station and the second platform had to be sited on the opposite side of the level crossing. The station is now a private house, seen here in November 2012.
