In Search of Steam

Today was always going to be a gamble with the weather. The forecast was for heavy rain all day. We headed over to Helensburgh to catch steam loco 62005 on her way to Fort William for the start of the Jacobite tour season.

Unknown to us at the start of our journey, the engine had broken down at Beatock Summit and had to return to her base.

All was not lost however. Passing Helensburgh Pier we saw Vic32, a delightfully restored little steam puffer. The weather didn't improve but we did brave the rain for a few minutes to catch a few pictures of her leaving the pier.
