Glimmer O’Garmach

The Spey Viaduct

1883, Great excitement.  At long last the villages and towns of the north east were to have a coastal railway built by the Great North of Scotland Railway Company and it was going to pass through Garmouth.  Can you imagine – no more long waits for the irregular, three-times weekly omnibus.  Heavy goods delivered almost to the door.  Summer visits from family and friends with few transport problems to overcome and the joy of young and old on hearing and seeing the chugging steam engines stopping at their very own station.
