Tain Territorials leaving for mobilisation

This photograph shows a large crowd gathered on the platforms at Tain. It was taken from the footbridge. Members of a reserve battalion of Seaforth Highlanders, part of the Territorial Force of the Highland Division, are about to travel south for training, most likely at Bedford.

Tain station was opened by the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway (I&AJR) on 1 June 1864. The I&AJR was one of the companies which merged to form the Highland Railway in 1865. It is still served by regular services.
