Gurnites will have probably seen the dramatic images on the telly of the derailed locomotive and Stobart food containers at Carrbridge. Stobart still have enough rolling stock to keep going however and quite a long train of similar containers was to be seen passing through Nairn around lunchtime. Once again the Inverness-Aberdeen line proves itself to be the ideal emergency route to the Highlands when both the A9 and the main railway route south are both blocked. To think too that there were strong rumours that some politicians wanted to close this lifeline back in the late seventies/early eighties.
More pictures of frozen Nairn - nothing exciting just a few pictures from areas around town where the recent thaw failed to make little impact.
