Killin Junction

(1884-1886)


Summary

In 1884, a temporary connection was laid in at the future site of Killin Junction for the contractors engaged in constructing the Killin Railway. The associated ground frame was released by the tablet for the Killin (i.e. Glenoglehead) to Luib tablet section.


14 November 1884

Col. Marindin (Board of Trade) reported on his inspection of a new connection on the Callander & Oban Railway for use of the contractor for the new Killin Branch, which would form part of the new line when completed. It was worked by one of Stevens' patent locking frames, which could only be opened by the tablet for the Luib/Killin station section. It would be necessary to have additional sidings inside the new connection to prevent shunting on the main line.
