27001 Mallaig 20Jul77

There's been some Flickr interest recently in class 27 no. 27001 and here she is, under the control of Mallaig signal box, drifting down towards the terminus with a train from Fort William on 20th July 1977.

 

By now in blue livery (although hard to see from this shot) which is in contrast to the image below

I probably should have moved a few feet to the right to shoot this but as usual, having had a couple of hours to figure it out, all the careful composition plans go out the window when the train actually appears around the corner. The view to the immediate right across the sea to Rhum can only be described as breathtaking - the shot at the link below was taken from the same spot
