Letters to The Editor

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your excellent Newsletter, which I am always glad to see, as it is always full of interest. I am very impressed with the progress which you are making in furthering the future of the Far North Line, especially in your success in attracting freight traffic to the line and in the introduction of the Winter Passenger Service on the line on Sundays.

I would also like to say how much I enjoyed your video of the line, which I purchased last year. I have great pleasure in enclosing a donation towards your excellent work, with my best wishes for your success in the future.

Incidentally, did you see the Railway Magazine's Jubilee Souvenir, in which they publish all the principal railway events in the Queen's reign so far. Under 1984 there is an item as follows:- Altnabreac (one passenger per week!) named as BR's least-used station! Happily it still remains open!

With very kind regards and all the best wishes for the prosperity of the Friends of the Far North Line,

Yours sincerely

Our thanks go to Mr. Walsh for his very kind words and gesture

Dear Editor,

I would like to agree with David St. John Thomas with regard to Post Bus connections with trains. Perhaps the Friends of the Far North Line could persuade ScotRail to include some information in their North Highland Line Timetable as there is spare room and they already include information regarding ferries and this information may encourage more passengers.

Yours faithfully
Keith Harman
