26037 stands at Helmsdale on 17/07/1985 after running round the empty stock off the unadvertised Wednesdays only (03/07-28/08) 1H67 1015 Inverness-Dunrobin Castle. As no run round facilities exist at Dunrobin Castle the train had to run further north. However as the service trains to Wick/Thurso were booked to cross at Brora the ECS had to run still further north to Helmsdale in order to run round. Here 26037 is seen awaiting departure time with 5H68 Helmsdale-Dunrobin Castle prior to working the return service 1H68 1500 Dunrobin Castle-Inverness.
