5025 passing Duncraig Castle

This photograph shows a preserved 5025 passing site of Duncraig platform in this helicopter view of Duncraig Castle. Duncraig platform is just ahead of the locomotive.

This locomotive, a 'Black 5', was built by the LMS (London Midland and Scottish) in 1934. It spent much of its working life based in the Highlands and Black 5s were the mainstay of services to Kyle of Lochalsh in later LMS and British Railways days.

5025 has been preserved by the Strathspey Railway based at Aviemore where it can still be seen. It still occasionally ventures out on to the main line to haul 'steam specials', as in the photograph.
