Highland Community Rail Event Flies the Flag at King’s Cross

Something was different at King’s Cross on Wednesday. Two huge Saltires were flying from the station roof in the breeze as Atholl Highlander pipers and dancers welcomed travellers. Colourful flash mob dancers promoted the Pitlochry Festival Theatre ‘Summer Holiday’ production, whilst 17 volunteers provided information on how direct train travel to the Scottish Highlands (day or overnight) was just a few steps away. Meanwhile, LNER was launching their brand new Azuma trains that will soon be providing an upgraded service to the highlands.
