Orkney and Caithness
« on: June 21, 2019, 04:41:56 AM »
My wife and I were on holiday in Orkney (April/May 2019). Naively we thought that this would be a holiday away from railways ..... No chance!

So much for a holiday away from everything (including railways). ... Here is the second attempt to get railways out of the system for those holidays in Orkney!

This is my last post about the railways in Orkney. It has been prompted by finding a secondhand copy of Wilfred Simms book - The Railways of Orkney.

We crossed back from Orkney on 11th May 2019 and drove via John O'Groats and Wick before heading south through Inverness. About 6 miles north of Wick on the A99 we drove over a narrow gauge (metre-gauge) line. This was a surprise and it needed to be investigated. .... This post is the result.
