I was in Edinburgh today and spied this plaque. New to me.

Oddly enough, I can only find one contemporary reference to it (Dundee Courier - 26/7/1916);

 

The "Jellicoe Express," as the sailors pleasantly and dutifully styled the extra fast train which carried them either way in the Highlands, was always one of the jolliest of specials to travel with. It traversed a wonderful country, especially after Invergordon the wild grandeur of Invershin forming a fitting gateway to the gorgeous mountain scenery of Sutherland"
