This book addresses the general politics of promotion and the disputes over state assistance for the Fort William-Mallaig line, rather than the heroics and the romance of construction and operation. It reviews other schemes, more or less successful. And it examines the expectations bound up with the railway development, asking how far these had been achieved, or remained relevant, by 1914.'I think I have sometimes made two blades of grass grow where only one grew before, and that is ... perhaps the highest function a man can do for his country': Charles Forman, civil engineer, evidence in support of the Invergarry & Fort Augustus Railway, 1896.

The Highland Railway has a special place in the eyes of many who have an interest in railways. Whether it is the romantic scenery, the long lines running through sparsely populated country or the characteristics of its locomotives that draws people is hard to say. The railway was a lifeline to the country during the twentieth century, and nowadays provides one of the most popular tourist lines in Scotland. Through the selection of over 200 archive photographs and their captions, this book depicts the rich scenery and history of the Highland Railway which stretched from Perth to Inverness and then further north to Wick and west to Kyle of Lochalsh. It shows how the train services met the needs of scattered communities in all weathers throughout the year; how the annual influx of tourists in the summer months was handled; and how the lines survived several attempts to close them by continually adapting their role. This book will be a treat for anyone who remembers the golden age of the railway and for anyone keen to capture the essence of those bygone days.
