HIGHLAND RAILWAY and Highland Railway Society
My interest in the H.R. goes back over 50
years, to the times I visited my Grandfather's ancestral croft at Tongue, on the north coast of Sutherland.
At the time we were living near London, and the journey was by the overnight "Royal Highlander" from
Euston to Inverness, and then by another train on to Lairg. From Lairg to Tongue the journey was by
the daily mailbus, a combination of coach front half and mailvan rear, which stopped to deliver not only
mail but bread, milk and other goods at many of the roadside crofts. The complete journey from London
took just 24 hours.
I am now Membership Secretary of the HRS, for their Home Page click here.
