Our friends in the North. Editorial on the joys of the West Highland Line in mid-winter when it was blocked by snow. To Inverness for Hogmanay.
On 29 December weiter travelled from Edinburgh to Inverness to celebrate New Year and the opportunity was taken to visit the railway station, with its unusual method of working where most arrivals reversed into the station, after traversing the Rose Street Curve to make cross platform interchanges simpler and Lochgorm Works.
In the station the cafeteria had recently been modernised, but the departure board still made use of enamel plates, several of them pasted over to remove lines which had closed.
The schoolboy was shown over Lochgorm Works by one of the foreman Lachy Russell who had revealing comments both on the former Highland Railway's locomotives and on some of the later mechanical engineers. At the time of the visit four class 5 s were being overhauled. Lachy joined the Highland when Peter Drummond was in charge, but sadly he has nothing to add to the Frederick Smith saga.
Christopher Cumming was known as 'Eagle Eye', but David Urie's brief tenure was viewed with disdain as he removed the recently acquired machine tools and took them with him to St Rollox Works, and this was followed by sixty staff at the Lochgorm Works being sacked.

Traffic from this station grew and journey times to the centre of Leeds were far faster than competing bus services. Traffic data are reproduced which show that most of the passenger traffic had disappeared before closure except south of Westherby, and especially south of Scholes.
The "iconoclastic" General Manager of the North Eastern Region was not interested in suburban passenger traffic into Leeds in spite of road congestion on the Leeds to Wetherby section. The tramway was worked by a horse tram, but some through traffic was steam hauled.

Colour photo-feature based on Foster Yeoman limestone trains from the quarries in the Mendips: The District obtained powers for electrification inand the Metropolitan in This ran at V DC. Meanwhile the Metropolitan had discovered the Ganz three-phase V AC system which required two separate overhead contact wires and attempted to inflict this system upon the Circle Line.
This system was not to the liking of Charles Tyson Yerkes, the American financier who had gained control of the District. Alfred Lyttleton on 11 December found in favour of the DC system.
