Steam Train to Mallaig

This tune is designed for four (or more) pipers, and is made up of "verses" punctuated with a chorus.

The "Steam Train to Mallaig" is a real train. It starts near the highest mountain in Britain (Ben Nevis), visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station (Arisaig), then passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain (Loch Morar), and the shortest river in Britain (River Morar) and finally arrives next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe - Loch Nevis. The train leaves Fort William at 10:20am and returns to Fort William at 4:00pm with an hour and a half in Mallaig. The train does stop en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard in 1745. After crossing the world famous 21 arch Glenfinnan viaduct, which has been used in the Harry Potter movies, and offers views down Loch Shiel, the train stops at the station.
