Page Two of Four


Waiting to depart from Keith Town station. On the left is a vew from the DMU towards Dufftown, while the view on the right
is looking back towards Keith Junction.

 


Very soon we are passing J&B's Strathmill distillery


The once busy Strathmill distillery siding lies rusting.

 


Strathmill Distillery

 

 
The railway runs through nicely wooded areas

 

 


Along with the wooded areas there are also large open areas of green rolling hillsides

 


Near Towiemore with the start of the Cairngorems (blue mountains) in the distance

 


To the north of Drummure Station with a nice Strath on the right. Strath is the Gaidhlig of a Plain.

 

  0129-30
Left: Approaching Drummure Station. The iron-framed building is to be a loco depot
Right: The train comes to a stand at Drummure station

 


Drummure station looks a sad and deserted place without it's original station buildings

 


The guard removes a bicycle from the brakevan onto the platform

 


The elderly passenger/cyclist heads of for a run through the very pleasant scenery in and a round Drummure and plans
to be back in time to catch the train back to Keith just after 2.pm

 

  0136-6
Rear views from the DMU as it travels in fine country with a rustic railway bridge to add character. Note telegraph pole on the left

 


Passing the fish farm near Park

 


Ditto

 


The Unit enters an avenue of trees as it winds it's way up to and past Loch Park.
It is virtually impossible to get a clear view of this man-made loch due to the
wealth of  trees growing along the railway bank

 


The driver's mate keeps a good lookout while the passengers enjoy the forward view from the DMU

 

 
Picturesque views from the DMU

 


Glenfiddich Distillery
