YOUR article (December 22) talks about the Strathspey and the Cairngorm National Park. You talk about the Strathspey steam railway. You also include a picture with the caption “Monarch of the Glen: The Strathspey steam railway pulls through the magnificent scenery of the Cairngorm National Park.”
The photo is nowhere near Strathspey in the Cairngorm National Park. It is actually Glenfinnan Viaduct on the Network Rail Line (British Rail) between Fort Williams and Mallaig. The train is a steam special railtour that runs in the summer only, and is run by West Coast Railways Ltd - a railtour and rail engineering company at Carnforth in Lancashire.
The team loco in the picture is K1 62005, which normally resides on the North Yorkshire Moors railway at Pickering and travels north every summer, and has never been anywhere near the Strathspey Railway.
