“The Highland Mainline route is a representation of the line from Perth to Inverness.

This route was originally built by the Highland Railway and runs from Perth in the South to Inverness at its most northerly point. This is a distance of 118 miles no less and there is not much level track! At its highest point it hits 1484 feet above sea level at Drumochtor which made it the highest point on BR or Network Rail as it is now known. It again hits a high at Slochd which is 1315 feet above sea level. It is essentially a mainline, and hence track speeds reflect this and it is a fairly fast run in parts with 90mph stretches being found.

RobertM has uploaded an extension from Inverness to Aberdeen, although this was never completed, in so far as it is missing scenery.”
