The new Stirling-Alloa-Kincardine railway reopened as many enjoyed Steam Train Scotland. Traditional coaches were pulled by “The Great Marquess” No 61994 on inaugural trips between Alloa and Stirling on 15th May. As the train passed by Causewayhead in Stirling I photographed the engine passing the Wallace Monument in the background. There are passionate train enthusiasts. The area was busy with anxious people waiting for the train to pass.
