Society Trip To Caithness
Monday 23 June 2003
A special train will descend on both Wick and Thurso on Monday 23rd June.
It is really a "very special" as it will be hauled by a deltic loco[actually
two-- 55019 and 55009] and should arrive in the early hours of morning
morning--certainly before 8 am. It's Wick first then Thurso
after that down the road to Dingwall for a trip to Kyle. Those
interested in local railways will want to see the train. No exact
times and things are a little flexible on the 4 day tour of Scotland.
