09/07/10: 47786 at Broomhill on the Strathspey Railway. The Royal Scotsman stock often ventures from Aviemore to Boat of Garten on the Strathspey line, but the 47 usually come off at Aviemore and a Strathspey loco (31327) takes the train forward to and from Boat of Garten. On this tour both 47s worked through to Boat of Garten and then continued for the first time ever through to the current end of the line at Broomhill. The proposed extension to Grantown on Spey runs away into the distance.
