Permanent Tourist

Royal Scotsman, Aviemore, Scotland

We had the luck of the devil while we were in Scotland; not only did the weather hold sufficiently long enough for me to get good photos every day we were there, but we also had a couple of great chance encounters. The best was at Aviemore, a tourist town in the Cairngorm mountain area, when I noticed The Royal Scotsman idling at the station as we arrived in the town. Quickly finding a short-stay car park space, I jumped out of the car and managed to find a view of the classic station sign and train which was clear of the more modern aspects of the station.
