West Highland Railway Line - Wet and Windy

A trip up to Crianlarich this morning with expectations of seeing three steam locomotives.

Sadly as there were a few failures we only saw two, and the weather was like the first day of winter.

Very, very wet - and windy - just to drive it in to the cameras.

Persevered and managed a few images, and also carried on up to Tyndrum for a second bite at the cherry. Weather - if anything - got worse.
