The railway was extended to Kyle from Stromeferry in 1897, after several years of very difficult engineering works. Kyle expanded rapidly as a result, and the ferry across to Skye, in the background of the photograph, became the most popular route to the island. As well as passengers, the railway carried a great deal of freight, some of which can be seen in the railway yard. It is not clear why the men are gathered at the siding
