ROYAL TRAIN.

WHO'S that driving the 1.42pm to Inverness? Princess Anne, who turned the service into a real Royal train

She showed she was not afraid to get her hands dirty yesterday by taking control of a diesel train for the first time.

The rain-lashed crowd was chuffed to see her steering the train into Inverness station from the Freightliner terminal a quarter of a mile away.

Inverness-based train driver Angus Fraser, 31, who delivers goods for the Western Isles, said afterwards: "The princess was great crack and very interested in Highland transport.

"She asked me how often I made a run over to the islands and if bad weather delayed the ferries very often."

Princess Anne, Honorary President of the Chartered Institute of Transport, later attended a seminar to discuss the Government's Transport White Paper.

Delegates heard how a more integrated transport network could be set up to get more vehicles off the roads.
