A Class 158 entering the up platform at Nairn, August 1995

This photograph shows a Class 158 entering the up platform at Nairn in August 1995.

Class 158 Express Sprinters are diesel multiple-unit (DMU) trains which were built for British Railways between 1989 and 1992.

Nairn station was opened in 1855 as the eastern terminus of the Inverness and Nairn Railway (I&NR) which connected those two towns. In 1861 the I&NR became part of the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway which in turn was one of the companies which merged to form the Highland Railway in 1865. It is still served by regular passenger services although it was closed to goods traffic in August 1983. The goods shed has been dismantled and can now be seen at Bridge of Dun station on the preserved Caledonian Railway.
