37248 Oban 6 October 2007

37248 Loch Arkaig  is pictured in the pouring rain at Oban on 6 October 2007 shunting the stock for the SRPS railtour which had arrived as the 1Z55 06:28 Dundee to Oban and would leave later in the day as the 1Z74 16:45 Oban to Dundee. The tour was hauled in both directions by 55022 Royal Scots Grey, with 37248 on the rear in case of failure. This required a quite complicated shunting procedure at Oban to change the locos round. Luckily due to a driver's dispute one of the normal service trains from Glasgow was cancelled, so they were uninterrupted by other traffic.
