Railway Station at Boat of Garten, Speyside

This postcard shows the railway station at Boat of Garten in Speyside. The station is on the restored Strathspey Steam Railway line.

The Strathspey Steam Railway opened in 1978 and took passengers between Aviemore and Boat of Garten. Its origins lie in the purchasing of the old railway line between Aviemore and Forres, by a group of railway enthusiasts. The group restored the line in 1971. Recent developments have seen the line being extended to Broomhill, half way between Boat of Garten and Grantown-on-Spey. The Broomhill terminus is more popularly known as Glenbogle Station in the television series 'Monarch of The Glen'
