ALONG WEST HIGHLAND LINES - An Insight into Two Classic Scottish Railways


The railways of the West Highland's are today an amalgam of former rival routes, the truncated main line to Oban, and the West Highland. An introduction to the two classic lines is followed by a journey along the remaining section of the Callander & Oban Railway with ScotRail driver Michael Magnay. As we travel west from Crianlarich conversation includes Royal connections, Clan rivalry, the unique Pass of Brander semaphores and the Ballachulish branch.

Side two looks at the West Highland today with signalling contrasts explained during visits to Fort William Jn, and the RETB nerve centre at Banavie, where signalmen oversee over 180 miles of railway north of Craigendoran Jn. We conclude with the steam operation to Mallaig joining the driver on the footplate, before an insight into Glenfinnan Railway Museum. 75014 has the last word.
