Kyle of Lochalsh railway station, Highlands, Scotland, c 1970s. There can be few more stunning settings for a station than at Kyle of Lochalsh, with the Isle of Skye in the background and the trawlers and ferry tied up at the piers. A Clas 24 diesel-electric locomotive is awaiting departure with a mixed train to Invernes at a time when fish traffic was still carried on the railway.
