BLAIR ATHOLL towards DRUMOCHTER

OOGauge By John & Ian McCreadie

 

Blair Atholl towards Drumochter is a replica of the Highland Main Line on its journey northwards from Bridge of Tilt through Blair Atholl village and the gruelling 1:78 climb to Drumochter Summit.

Set in early October, the village is still enjoying some late autumn sunshine whilst further north, an early winter snowfall has caused havoc to drivers on the A9 trunk road to Inverness and the snow gates have been closed for the first time this year. On closer inspection you will find the Police trying to pacify the stranded motorists while the roads department attempts to clear the drifts. Railway customers are completely unaffected due to Perth Controlís foresight in having the independent snowploughs operational all night.

To provide the greatest variety, the trains running are those you would have seen between 1978 and 1990. However donít be surprised if you should see some modern interlopers or unusual classes of locomotive on charters and rail tours.

Thanks to John & Ian for the use of these pictures.
