50031 Scotscalder 18 June 2006

Under dark grey skies and through the driving rain, 50031 Hood approaches the remote station at Scotscalder on 18 June 2006 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z22 17:00 Thurso to Wick and Inverness 'Orcadian' railtour. Scotscalder station serves no more than a few scattered farms and cottages and is situated amid very bleak moorland and rough grazing land.
