Callander West



Callander West was one of two signal boxes provided in connection with the enlargement of Callander station in 1882. The signal box closed when the line closed in 1965.

Signal box opened.

23 August 1882

Col. Marindin (Board of Trade) reported on his inspection of the incomplete new station. The signalling was concentrated in two new cabins at the ends of the loop and the interlocking was correct. The siding signals were, as usual on the Caledonian Railway, semaphore signals and not discs and it is desirable that these signals should be subordinated to the main line signals by shortening and, where practicable, lowering the posts. The station required re-inspection when complete.
