 The new Balamory sign at Craignure station

All the signs were changed, watched over by 'Grumpy Dave', our very own railway controller, driver, engineer and man not to 'mess with'.

In the autumn of 2002, the B.B.C visited Mull Railway to film an episode of Balamory, for the Cbeebies production aimed at the younger end of the T.V. audience.  The railway was transformed for the afternoon into the Balamory Express. 

Grumpy Dave oversees the work

We must also mention the Tobermory, or should I say, Balamory playgroup. >>>>

The real star of the show, besides Miss Hoolie, P.C. Plum, and of course Dave, was our Loco, Lotti (Lady of the Isles)
