Miller and Begg: a Railway Family
by Howard Geddes

The 97th issue of the Highland Railway Journal, in Spring 2011, contained an article by Howard Geddes.

We thank Howard Geddes for his kind permission to re-publish his article, which concerns a railway family working on the Highland Railway, a family career which ended at Lochailort, Moidart. The article mentions two photographs which were left out because of lack of space in the printed journal; we don't have that problem and the two photographs are reproduced below, including a particularly atmospheric one of Walter Begg exchanging the single-line working tablets at night.

There are still members of the family living in Moidart.
