A special taking on water at Muir of Ord, June 1960

This photograph shows an enthusiast's special taking on water at Muir of Ord in June 1960. It was the last train ever to run on the Black Isle (Fortrose) branch line.

On 11 June 1862 the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway opened their line between Inverness and Dingwall. It included a station at the village of Tarradale but the company decided to name it after the nearby cattle tryst (market), Muir of Ord. Eventually the name Muir of Ord was applied to the surrounding area.
