A Highland Railway train a train stuck in a snow drift at Altnabreac, 1895

A Highland Railway crew attempt to dig a train out of a snow drift near Altnabreac during the particularly severe winter of 1894/95.

All railway lines in the Highlands are vulnerable to severe winter conditions and this was especially so in the second half of the 19th century, when the lines were relatively new. Fences were put up but they were inadequate.
