40145 Achanalt 27 August 2005

As the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 06:55 Birmingham New Street to Kyle of Lochalsh 'Whistling Scotsman' railtour headed west onto the Kyle of Lochalsh line on 27 August 2005, the rain that had been threatening all morning started with a vengeance. The bushes in the foreground bend in the strong wind as 40145 crosses the bridge between Loch a' Chuilinn and Loch Achanalt. All to familiar Scottish weather, as the mountains in the background are veiled in slanting rain!
