(1) Route & loco confirmation required.
(2) Originally uploaded as 27009 working n its own, Brian Knights, archivist for the SRPS, lists '27009 as piloted 27019'...so was it in fact 27009+27019 from Cowlairs to Fort William? Bob Spooner however comments: I viewed this tour in the morning on its outward working, while spotting at Garelochhead, and it was 27041 on its own (I have noted that it was an SRPS railtour with headboard). Not sure this helps a lot as it probably just adds to the confusion, but I didn't see 27009 or 27019 in the time I was there.
