Chaidh Montague Ninian Alasdair Brothaigh (1912 - 2003) na cheann-cinnidh air Clann Bhrothaigh air 15 An Gearran 1943, 's e an 25mh Brothaigh. Chaidh fhoghlam aig Eton, agus an uair sin lean e dreuchd cleasaiche agus b' ann nuair a bha e còmhla ri Perth Repertory Company a choinnich e an tè a phòsadh e, Helena Budgeon. Na b' anmoiche leig e seachad an taigh-cluiche agus chuidich e a mhàthair a bhith a' ruith Oighreachd Bhrothaigh. Tron Dàrna Cogaidh rinn e seirbheis leis An Làmhachas Rìoghail agus na b' anmoiche na bheatha bha e na Mhaor Ceartais airson Mhoireibh agus na Iar-leifteanant air Siorrachd Inbhir Nàrann. Ann an 1978, air sgàth adhbharan ionmhais, thàinig air Caisteal Bhrothaigh a thoirt a-null do dh'Urras Nàiseanta na h-Alba.

Anns an earrainn chlaisnich seo bhon phrògram 'Marshall Meets' aig Rèido Linne Mhoireibh tha Ninian a' bruidhinn ri Sam Marshall mun Rèile Ghàidhealach.

Interviewer: One of your great loves was for the railway?

Yes. I always say the Highland Railway was my first love; it was Highland until 1923 when it became part of the LMS although I still enjoyed it then but I liked it best - the old Highland Line. I used to go down to the station - Brodie had a station then - and two of the guards used to let me wave the flag to wave the train away. One of them, I remember, always used to blow his whistle at the same time which annoyed me because I felt the driver could quite well take the signal from my, my green flag. And, Oh I used to collect the names, the names of all the engines -all the Highland Railway passenger engines were named - and I used to have a little notebook. I wrote down the numbers and the names of all the ones I'd seen. Great excitement the first time I saw a number '50', the 'Brodie Castle'. That, I remember was at Aviemore. And oh, they had enchanting names too - castles, clans, bens, lochs - all sorts.

Interviewer: How did you feel when they decided to close that station at Brodie?

Well, sad in a way but it obviously was no longer economical. Originally it had been the freight traffic that had been the paying thing; farm implements, farm stock, grain and so on ,and timber - a great deal of timber was handled there - and it was just bang on the main road with the bus service so the passenger service when, when the freight diminished, the passenger service was mega little indeed. So they were right - it was sad - but they were right enough to close it down
