What's this.


videoUnfortunately the outdoor photography was totally uninspiring today as the cloud level eventually dropped to around 600m along with wet snow and heavy rain:( and so I took advantage of a grand tour around the bowels of the Funicular on Cairngorm mountain which we can use on a regular basis as part of our commute up the hill weather permitting. (We are eternally grateful for this!!) The top picture shows the underneath of one of the trains and the clip is of the huge wheels that run the funicular line. Apparently the funicular generates power into the national grid if it takes a carriage load of people down to the bottom. It can also transport over 1000 people up the hill within the hour.
