Nairn - 47467 10.38 Inverness - Aberdeen 17-09-1988

Do you remember the glory days when a train was a train? Instead of weird contraptions that look like two giant tins of Tennants Lager on wheels? Thanks again to Gordon for this pic of bygone days. A Gurn reporter was in Aberdeen today and as the multiple units failed to 'couple' correctly (they tried several times), a large crowd of passengers were crowded onto two carriages that left after 1600 instead of the usual four at 1523. Our intrepid travel correspondent managed to secure a space on the luggage rack.  Is it just the effect of rose-tinted spectacles but in the days that this picture was taken didn't all the trains through Nairn have five carr1ages?
