St. Bride’s Crossing



A new crossing loop was established at St. Bride's in 1893 to split the section between Callander West and Strathyre. John Anderson had wanted to open a station here but landowner objections prevented it. A switching out facility was provided in 1921. For a period, a siding had existed on the Down side. The crossing loop and signal box closed in 1951.

Maj. Gen. Hutchinson (Board of Trade) reported on his inspection of a new passenger passing place with a new signal cabin (10 working levers and 8 spaces) and found the interlocking correct.
