62005 Lord of the Isles, 1Z25, passing Fort William yard, 26 September 2009 - 1328 Visible at right is the ECS for the 'Jacobite' summer steam train to Mallaig. It was not in use as the 'Jacobite' does not run at weekends as the season winds down. Also visible is the tender of 45407, which shared 'Jacobite' duties with 62005. The two locos worked alternate weeks. The K1 spent the entire May - October 'Jacobite' season at Fort William, but the Black 5 had replaced sister 45231 at the beginning of August. Steam trains have been running to Mallaig since 1984.
