In February, Park Primary School Nursery in Invergordon decided to use the Far North Line to give thirty-five of their children the experience of travelling by train.
They went to Alness for a visit the to the High Street shops. They then walked to the park to have a picnic snack and some time to play, before heading to the station to catch the train back to Invergordon.
The nursery's childcare manager Isaac Williamson said, "We had a wonderful morning out, which the children loved, helped by several parents." He thanked ScotRail staff and the parent volunteers for their support during the trip and commented that the children "made quite a sight walking up the Alness High Street in their high-visibility vests."
