Special Events on the Kyle Line

Various special trains travel the Kyle Line.  Some are excursions from Edinburgh and are additional to the published normal schedule of trains.  These are usually organised by tour operators (see useful links page) and travel to Kyle, sometimes hauled by diesel engines, sometimes by steam engines.

  

Steam in Kyle of Lochalsh

You can see pictures and a video concerning the recent visit of a steam train to Kyle of Lochalsh. Note that if your broadband is less than 400kbps you are best to wait for the entire clip to load and then play it again without interruption. Lovely sound!

The images below show the steam train The Great Britain VI on its journey towards and at Kyle of Lochalsh station on Friday 26 April 2013.  (Photographs taken by Kevin Alexander)
