Take a Ride on the CairnGorm Mountain Railway - Visit To Scotland [03:10]
Last week we took a ride on the the Caingorm Mountain Railway! We hope you enjoy our video, and Subscribe, Rate Thumbs Up, Comment and Share - it encourages us to make more videos for you! 'The CairnGorm Mountain Railway is the highest railway in the United Kingdom since it opened in 2001.

Giving approximate journey times of four minutes in winter and nine minutes during the summer (calculated without middle station stops). The single track line has a passing loop just above the middle station. During ascent ...

MODEL RAIL SCOTLAND (PART 9) [04:37]
In this part we look at 3 more layouts. Choates Lane, Hyndford & Portchullin. Choates Lane owners i'd like thank in assisting in the shots for filming & showing me round the layout.

Hyndford is set in the Scottish SPT area & a couple of 156's & a 66 are seen here. Portchullin set some where in the highlands, takes us back to BR blue era. The layout has many detailed buildings & great weathering etc. A credit to the layouts builders. In the next part we take a brief look at Bachmann's stand & it's eagerly awaited Blue Pullmann DMU, plus more layouts. Coming next......
