'The Great Marquess' 61994 - Steam tour

With hopes of an improvement in the weather today, we headed up the West Highland Line to see steam loco 61994 "The Great Marquess" hauling a tour up the line to Fort William.

We followed her up from Garelochhead to Tyndrum, via Arrochar and Crianlarich.

Having left Arrocaher on time, we headed up to Crianlarich, only to learn an hour later that she had been delayed further down the line.

Well, most of that hour was spent standing in the rain which had decided to spoil our day.
