I saw the usual class 67 at Inverness Sat 12th May but I have recorded it as 67025.

This can't be can it???

I know there are only four RETB fitted 67's of which 025 isn't one and they are the one's that are allowed up this way.

Was I seeing things???

Most probably half asleep :)

Just need to hear it from someone else, as 67025 is one of the few I need to see to complete the class

Thanks

I'm confused.

RETB is only required North of the Ness Railway Bridge. As far as I am aware, all 67's are allowed to Inverness, either via Aviemore or Aberdeen.

I think it might be preferred to use the RETB ones for the Highland mainline due to the brake modifications, but not required.

Thank you for your help

So glad I wasn't seeing things.

Still if it weren't my eyes it was my brain, thinking non RETB 67's couldn't get to Inverness. My thought's were because the sleeper 67 comes from the RETB pool of 67's.

Thanks again
