40145 Balnacra 27 August 2005

With the mountains in the background shrouded in cloud 40145 accelerates away from the level crossing at Balnacra with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 06:55 Birmingham New Street to Kyle of Lochalsh 'Whistling Scotsman' railtour on 27 August 2005. This is an obvious spot to wait for the train when chasing by car towards Kyle of Lochalsh, as this picture is taken from the side of the road, so no walking involved!
