I am trying to find a good quality copy of the image below of a class 1 on the Ballachulish branch for Campbell Cornwell's book on Caley Locos. The CRA collection has a print, but the focus is poor. The attached came from Campbell but while the focus is very good, he only has an injket print. He cannot remember who gave him the print. Can anyone help with a sharp copy.

Yes it is - forgot to check. One of the interesting features of the photo is that is shows shingle ballast from the foreshore.

The train's probably heading into Kentallen station on its way to Ballachulish, Keith, with the small peninsular with Ardsheil House behind it. The line's along th eloch side at that point so shingle would have been in good supply.
