The Highland Main Line: Its People and Buildings

21 September 2017

This talk by Neil Sinclair will look at two different aspects of the Highland Main Line. One is the people involved with the railway between Perth and Inverness. They included the landowners through whose estates the line was built and those whose lives could be greatly affected by the line running close to, or even through, the farms they tenanted. Another group whose lives are discussed are the permanent way staff who, with their families, often lived alongside remote parts of the line.
