The Highland Railway Society has just published the above paper giving a brief history of the site in Inverness where stage 2 of the Eastgate Centre is located.
As a non-historian I am in awe at the presentation of facts, figures and reminiscences contained within the paper and it saddens me that I didn't pay more attention to the Highland railway scene when I first visited Inverness in the late 1950s.
This is a 'must-have' purchase for all those who have any interest in the Highland rail scene.
Copies can be purchased for £3 plus 75p postage and packing from Keith Fenwick, 31 Brackley Lane, Abthorpe, Towcester, NN12 8QJ. Cheques should be made payable to Highland Railway Society.
Iron Roads to the Far North & Kyle
You've read 'The Highland Railway' by H. A. Vallance and 'The Skye Railway' by John Thomas and 'Rails to Kyle of Lochalsh' by David McConnell so it's now time to read the latest Iron Road book by Michael Pearson which complements his earlier book 'Railway Holiday in Scotland'.
Once again, this is a 'must-have' purchase so that you have the ultimate in a window gazer's guide book, but it is more than that because the amount of lineside detail and description means that you are persuaded to get down from the train and explore the surrounding countryside using the gazetteer to help you find your way about.
A copy is available to members at a special price when renewing your membership.
