On Sunday 12th April 2009 around 12 noon the 'Great Britain ll' charter with around 500 passengers arrived from Inverness and took on water.

The train formation of 12 coaches had been on a U.K. tour for a week and had been hauled by a variety of engines Diesel, Electric, and Steam

Cost for the week including all meals was around 2000 per person. After the engines had been watered the train left at 1250 for Aberdeen.

A large crowd enjoyed being up close to the Steam Engines and a golden opportunity for some brilliant pictures.
