A Quotation Whose Time is Awaited

"I hope we're going in to a period now where we will see great vision going forward. There are many ambitious plans to develop the railway across Scotland. I must admit that many of these plans centre on the Central Belt, but that doesn't mean to say that there aren't opportunities for this part of the world."

"I hope that in a few years' time we won't be holding ceremonies looking back at 150 years, but hopefully seeing as many people as this at opening ceremonies for new schemes that are being opened on the railway, putting back what was taken away from us in the Sixties."

Ron McAulay, Director (Scotland), Network Rail, speaking at the Nairn 150 celebrations, 9 July 2005.
