Callander & Oban Railway Through Time
- Paperback - Amberley
Construction on the Callander and Oban Railway began in 1866, although the line itself didn't open until 1880. Designed to link Callander, near Stirling, with the west coast port of Oban, the line was never profitable although Oban developed as a fashionable resort after the arrival of the railway. Although the section of line between Crianlarich and Oban remains open as part of the West Highland Line, the eastern section between Callander and Crianlarich closed following a landslide in September 1965. In this book, Ewan Crawford uses a mixture of old and new photographs to recall the history of the line.
