40145 Whitefield 27 August 2005

The landscape around Elgin is not particularly inspiring and after getting stuck in a horrendous traffic jam in the town, which for some reason doesn't have a bypass, I had no time to search for another location. 40145 passes Whitefield (approximately 3 miles west of Elgin) with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 06:55 Birmingham New Street to Kyle of Lochalsh 'Whistling Scotsman' railtour on 27 August 2005. The train had spent the night at Aberdeen, leaving the Granite City at 10:30.
