Neil Sinclair


You will recall following on from the AGM in September we welcomed renowned author Neil Sinclair, to give a series of talks on the Highland Main Line in our smaller communities; Blair Atholl, Dunkeld & Birnam, Kingussie and Carrbridge. Neil wrote a very good article on the Highland Mainline Community Rail Partnership for publication in the Highland Railway Magazine, which you can read here. Thank you Neil, we hope to see you again at some point.
