Southbound train at Dingwall

This photograph shows a Class 158 diesel unit calling at Dingwall.

The line from Inverness to Dingwall was opened on 11 June 1862. Services were extended northwards to Invergordon on 23 March 1863. On 9 August 1870, the station became a junction when the line to Strome Ferry was opened. The station remains open for passenger services, but goods services ceased in August 1983.

The Class 158 units were introduced in the early 1990s for longer distance trains in Scotland and have operated trains north of Inverness since the late 1990s.
