66741 at Arrochar & Tarbet66741 at Arrochar & TarbetGBRF's 66741 'Swanage Railway' arrives into Arrochar & Tarbet with 6S45 North Blyth - Fort William Alcan Tanks 29.7.21 I was on holiday up at Arrochar on the West Highland Line for a week.   Arrochar is a lovely part of the country with some stunning views around Loch Long and a massive array of wildlife to see as well. The train service its self is spread out with a train every couple of hours and mainly features Class 156s with the new class 153 'Active Carriages' added on to some of the Oban workings. Adding interest to the timetable is the morning/ evening sleeper and the North Blyth - Fort William Alcan tanks working.   There is also the occasional ECS working of Mark 1 stock to / from Fort William / Carnforth for Jacobite workings as well as occasional steam loco moves again for the Jacobite.
