D5314 Bridge of Dun 4 May 2008

Although the sun shone all day on Bank Holiday Monday 5 May 2008 for the Caledonian Railway's Diesel Gala, the weather on the preceding two days was less good. However, D5314 is pictured here arriving at Bridge of Dun with the 11:00 train from Brechin in a brief patch of sunshine on 4 May. This is the site of the junction with the line to Guthrie, the area on the left now being used by the Caledonian Railway's engineering department. The headboard commemorates 50 years of the Class 26 locomotive (BRCW / Sulzer Type 2).
