"Scots Guardsman 46115 with a steam excursion pulls away from Nairn station early this evening" (22/4)

Image on Visit Nairn's Facebook pages.   The locomotive was also seen by regular reader James O'Brien. He told the Gurn:
" There was a steam train through Forres and Nairn this evening. 
West Coast Railways ran their 'Great Britain V' train, hauled by LMS 'Royal Scot' class loco 46115 'Scots Guardsman' this way. Unfortunately it was running twenty minutes or so late, because of delays in crossing over with the regular diesel trains on the run from Aberdeen to Inverness.  
This is the loco that will carry the Olympic Torch at some point before the Games this year.  
This shot was at Inverearn Road crossing at Forres."
