Around about now, I had been hoping to advise you to raid the piggy-bank and splash out on my new book, due out on 8 May. Its title is A Quite Impossible Proposal, and it concerns wonderfully hopeless railway-schemes for the north-west of Scotland. Alas, Covid-19 has intervened, and my publisher - probably sensibly, but nonetheless very annoyingly - has postponed publication to a future date (at present unknown).
In the meantime, all is not lost. I would now point you rather insistently in the direction of a new rabbit-hole in the dangerous warren that is my website. Here you may examine the many timetables and fares on the Highland Railway Company network, and be invited to buy a passenger ticket, or send your phaeton, a half-dozen anvils or 20 barrels of fish from (say) Ullapool to Aultguish (where's that?).
