Steam Train at Mallaig in the Scottish Highlands

By Ros @scotlandphohos

I was heading back from Skye at the weekend, and found myself in Mallaig with a wee bit of time to kill. I wandered over to the station to see when the steam train from Fort William was due in, as I thought I might try to take a few pictures. It turned out I had impeccable timing – the engine pulled into the station just as I arrived.

I couldn’t believe the number of people who got off – the platform was completely packed with tourists jostling for a place to take their pictures of the train and Ian Riley, the train’s owner, who was patiently leaning out of the engine, smiling as folk snapped away.

I had to wait quite a while for some space to get this shot!
