OUTING  5th OCTOBER 2005 COURTESY KEITH AND DUFFTOWN RAILWAY ASSOCIATION

On a nice sunny Wednesday afternoon, a trip from Keith to Dufftown was enjoyed by Heritage Group members and friends.

Departing from Keith Town at 1:30 pm and arriving some 30 mins later at Dufftown after a very relaxing trip

On arrival at Dufftown we  were treated to a lovely spread of sandwiches, scones, cake, tea or coffee and a 'dram'.

Enjoyed by all and a complimentary miniature to take home.

A very enjoyable afternoon arriving back in Keith around 4:15 pm.
