Insch: A view of the level crossing, signal box and former water tank (with totem) at Insch from the 'Inverness' end of the station. This is perhaps the best example of a close to intact smaller GNoSR station.

A £170m investment package has been confirmed by First Minister Alex Salmond for the Inverness to Aberdeen railway.
Over the next five years, there will be a redoubling of the track between Aberdeen and Inverurie.
Platforms at Insch and Elgin will be extended to accommodate six-car trains.
Signalling improvements will be made at Elgin, the station at Forres relocated and work done so new stations can be built at Kintore and Dalcross.
Kintore's original station was closed in the 1960s. Dalcross is close to Inverness Airport.
Future phases of the scheme will support an hourly service between the cities with average journey time reducing to about two hours, it was announced.

Dalcross: The former Dalcross station, between Inverness and Nairn, viewed from the north side of the level crossing in July 2011. The station closed in 1965 and like a number of others on this line is now a private residence. If a new station opens for Inverness Airport as proposed it will be sited to the east of here.

Kintore: With the remains of Kintore station platform behind the photographer, an Inverness service disappears towards Inverurie on 19 October 2012. The line to Alford curved away to the left at this point and is still identifiable as such for a short distance.
