Almost 60 years after the widespread axing of hundreds of Scottish railway stations, proposals have been made to reverse the closures and boost the economy.

Plans for a railways revolution in the north-east aimed at boosting commuter links to and from Aberdeen are back on track.
Transport chiefs want more frequent services for travellers heading in and out of the city for work from towns such as Inverurie and Stonehaven.
And a wish-list of new stations has been drawn up - including Kintore, Persley, Kittybrewster, Cove and Newtonhill - which is facing major expansion with a new town at Chapelton of Elsick.

Kittybrewster [2nd]: B1 no 61242 Alexander Reith Gray running south wrong-line through Kittybrewster station in September 1960. The locomotive is thought to be on its way from Kittybrewster shed (the top of the coaling plant can be seen above the tender) to Aberdeen station to pick up a train. From the ground signal the locomotive appears to be clear to use the crossover behind the camera.
