Daren Li, I can think of more things that are more damaging to the environment!  These machines take a lot of dedication to keep up and running! Think of many things that we used to have but don't use anymore- Vulcan for example!
It's a wonderful video and successful history of Alec.  We regret we didn't take this train and didn't see you when we visited Highland.  We lived in Edinburgh for a year and we adore Scotland. We live in Paris actually.   I sent this YouTube to several friends including my cousin's son living in Japan  who loves steam trains so that he may come to take your train in the near future.  Thank you very much for your keen work, Alec !

After watching this I literally have a pain in my chest from missing Scotland so much. What a beautiful country - and what an amazing way to see part of it. Highly recommended. Alec, you're a lucky man - and if you were at the head of our train - thanks for the great ride to Mallaig and back.
In this context, who needs Harry Potter, anyway?
