158712 Georgemas Junction 7 August 2000

158712 stands at Georgemas Junction on 7 August 2000 with the 12:10 Wick to Inverness ScotRail service. Although at first sight this may seem odd, as it is in fact facing Wick, all trains from Wick first visit Thurso before bactracking to Georgemas Junction and then continuing on their way to Inverness. 158712 has just arrived from Thurso (departure time 12:37) around the sharply curved line to the right in the background. The driver will shortly change ends and then head off across the remote Caithness countryside on its nearly four hour journey to Inverness.
