HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c37W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration has now been given by his Department to the recommendation of the Technical Committee on the Cairngorms that a passenger rail link should be opened between Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey; and what has been the result.

Mr. Ross

Any question of the rein-statement by British Rail of passenger services between Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey would be a matter for consideration by them. I understand, however, that the Highlands and Islands Development Board is considering whether the line could be reopened on a private basis as a tourist attraction.
