The Longest Load to travel on rails? Or ... Narrow Gauge in

That title should end ... "Narrow Gauge in Caithness, Scotland"

We crossed back from Orkney today and drove via John O'Groats and Wick before heading south through Inverness. About 6 miles north of Wick on the A99 we drove over a narrow gauge (metre-gauge) line. This was a surprise and it needed to be investigated. .... This post is the result.

Fascinating . I recall a railway been built for a water line in NZ, but nothing like the length of this.

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.
