67023 Blackford 17 April 2003

67023 passes Blackford, on the Highland Main Line with the 4D65 15:12 Inverness to Mossend Safeway Intermodal train on 17 April 2003. A ridiculously inappropriate loco for the job, but then since the cessation of the Royal Mail trains, the class has no real purpose, so has to be found work somewhere. The A9 trunk road can be seen in the background, and just out of the picture to the right is the huge shed that is the Highland Spring factory, hardly the quaint image that the name conjures up!
