New images of ScotRail's UK-first carriages for carrying cycles on Highland routes unveiled

Specially designed cycle carriages are set to be introduced for the first time in the UK on a Scottish Highland rail route.

Detailed article in the latest edition of Modern Railways, on sale tomorrow

I like to travel.  It lets me feel I'm getting somewhere.
