Perth, to the rail enthusiast was a fascinating centre in the days of steam, where ex LNER and LMS locos rubbed shoulders in the engine depot. Scenes of the shed yard and adjacent main line in the 1960's show a wide variety of loco types including the famed 'A4's', plus a superb colour sequence of a streamlined LMS 'Duchess' in 1937. To the traveller, Perth ws the 'gateway' North to Inverness and the Highlands. To the East lay Dundee and the East Coast route to Aberdeen, but in this programme the main line to Aberdeen was still via Coupar Angus and Forfar. The signalbox at Kinnaber Junction, made famous during the 'Race to the North' in the 1890's, guarded the meeting of the routes to Aberdeen from Forfar and Dundee. Immediately South of Perth at Hilton Junction, the Glasgow and Edinburgh routes diverged. The Edinburgh route via Glenfarg and Kinross, unlike the M90 motorway now covering it's trackbed, fitted unobtrusively into the landscape. Until its closure in 1970, this line was the most direct rail link between Perth and the Scottish capital. Montrose, South of Kinnaber Jct, had branch lines to Brechin and Inverbervie. A freight train to Brechin plus the 'special' last passenger train to Inverbervie are captured on film in 1966, both powered by steam in the form of ex-North British Class J37's. In addition to steam locomotives, archive footage depicts DMU's, NB Type 2's, Class 26 and Class 40's plus the rare view of a Class 50 'fly-shunting' at Forfar!
