Steam enthusiasts will have two chances to see coal-fired locomotives in Nairn this week. The Railway Touring Company’s website gives details of when their Great Britain railtour 2014 will pass through Nairn.
On Thursday the 1st May a LMS Black 5 class 4-6-0 steam locomotive will take over the train for the journey from Aberdeen to Inverness. The times on the site are Aberdeen 14:07, Huntly 16:54, Inverness 19.20. The train will obviously be travelling slowly with a few stops so exactly what time it arrives in Nairn might be hard to work out precisely.
The return journey on Saturday 3rd is a bit more precise quoting: Inverness (Platform 1) 09:37, Nairn 10:15. More information here.
