Scottish Steam
Author: Rattie

Some footage from a photo charter on the Strathspey Steam Railway that is based in the Scotish Highlands at Aviemore.  Filmed on the 3rd March 2017 we see 2-6-0 Class 2MT No. 46512 "E. V. Cooper, Engineer". Built for British Railways in Swindon in 1952 and withdrawn from service in December 1966. 128 were built between 1946 and 1953 of which seven survive.  Six are have run in preservation but only three are currently active. No 46512 was returned to operation in March 2011.

Wow Very nice. First action shot where the orange vests were filtered is excellent. Good looking locomotive and stock.

Thank you.  It was put together to show first-timers what goes on at such events.  I will be posting a couple more in the coming days from the same event.

Nice framing in your first clip and reducing the photo line to almost nil in the balance.

The British Isles may be awash in Brexit . . but man do they have tons of preserved railways  . .  and not just lines that run one or two miles . . er  . . kilometers . . . they really cherished their rail history thanks to many preservation societies

We still use miles.  The Strathspey Steam railway will be 12 miles once it reached Grantown on Spey.  The line is currently 2 and a bit miles short.  One of the quirks of us joining the EU back in the 1970's was while we moved to the metric system for most things, our road signs are still in miles and our car speeds are still MPH.
