Probably the last ever daylight hours service from Banchory on 26 Feb 1966, seen just before the Beltie Viaduct west of Torphins. The Cravens-Swindon DMU combo snapped a second or so later on the Beltie or Blarnacrag Viaduct on 26.2.66, the last day of passenger services on the Deeside Line. Kittybrester coaling tower in its final stages of demolition, an unidentified D5000, later class 24, looks on, 4 Dec 1965.
This goods office in Huntly yard clearly shares the same characteristic GNSR styling as their wooden station buildings_Early1960's. Looking like something from "it ain't half hot mum", this old GNSR coach was the long since replaced old clubhouse at Lumphanan golf club, early 60's. A typical permanent way hut incorporating a window from Bieldside Station, date and exact location unknown.
A series of pictures were taken around Kittybrewster whilst making revisions to the then current O.S. maps,No doubting the exact date for once, Courtesy of Aberdeen City Archives ref DD638-89. Bridges similar to these on the Deeside line now often have replacement decking and parapets, if you want to see an original visit Torphins!
