40145 Meikle Cantly 27 August 2005

40145 races past Meikle Cantly (between Huntly and Keith) with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 06:55 Birmingham New Street to Kyle of Lochalsh 'Whistling Scotsman' railtour on 27 August 2005. The train had stabled overnight in Aberdeen and was now making its way to Inverness via Dyce and Huntley. In contrast to the Highlands and even the Southern Uplands, the north east of Scotland does not posses any spectacular scenery, much of the line being through nondescript farmland such as this.
