Steam railway enthusiasts in the Highlands are planning to create a learning centre to interest young people in engineering.
The facility would be built in the Cairngorms National Park and run by the Strathspey Steam Railway.
The idea was discussed at a meeting of the railway's charitable trust on Monday night.
The steam railway group runs locomotives along 10 miles (16km) of line between Aviemore and Broomhill.
It hopes to eventually add three more miles of track (4.8km) to connect Aviemore with Grantown-on-Spey.
