First, the industry must be of a size and pattern suited to modern conditions and prospects. In particular, the railway system must be modeled to meet current needs. Harold Macmillan
A project tracing the routes of branch lines that were cut following the Beeching Report in 1963Stuart McAdam came to Huntly in Summer 2013 from Glasgow. Stuart's Lines Lost project was triggered by the infamous railway cuts which saw train tracks closed as a result of Dr Richard Beeching's recommendations 50 years ago. Through a series of performative walks with all kinds of people along the former Portsoy to Huntly route, McAdam's aim was to bring into focus the historic and contemporary concerns surrounding our transport legacy.
