Milton of Crathes station will showcase a unique piece of rail history after volunteers spent years lovingly restoring it.
The rare postal trolley which will soon be on view has been repaired by a group of Royal Deeside Railway volunteers.
The GPO handcart is thought to be one of few left and has been in the care of the group for the last five years.
Members of the group reckon the trolley transferred mail from Torphins station to Banchory and other post offices until Torphins closed in 1966.
Bill Brown told the Deeside Piper and Herald that doing up the cart was “very interesting”.
He said there had been “various problems along the way” but added that the end result “is really good”.
The finished article will soon be an eye-catching piece of railway history for visitors to the station, which sits on a section of the former branch line between Aberdeen and Ballater.
