Caledonian sleeper from Crewe (again with lovely announcer voice ;-)) to Aviemore with regular traffic and on by bus to the Strathspey museum railway at Boat of Garden and Broomhill. The staff was very hospitable and invited us into the signal box. After taking a landscape shot at Broomhill we took the steam train pulled by #17 "Braeriach" 0-6-0T (Andrew Barclay & Son, Kilmarnock works #2017, built in 1935) back to Aviemore. We pokered high and won by going to Dunkeld & Birnam where the Great Britain II would cross our train. As we got out it just pulled into the station with a Black 5 double header formed by 45231 "The Sherwood Forester" and 45407 "The Lancashire Fusilier". Just a few minutes later we were on our way north again to Inverness.
