Callander to Oban:
Thank you for visiting the Callander and Oban Railway Signalling Archive website. This website presents an organised historical record of signalling arrangements on the Callander and Oban Railway. Opened in stages between 1870 and 1880, this was the first railway to penetrate the West Highlands of Scotland. In many respects, the line has a more interesting history than its younger neighbour, the West Highland Line, and this is certainly true of its signalling.
The Killin Railway was independent of the C&OR, but its details are included on this site for completeness.
Signalling features of particular note include:
Most of the information on this site is contained within pages concerning specific individual locations on the railway. Direct links to each of those pages are laid out in route order on the left-hand side of this home page (locations in italics are those where no signal box existed during the specified period). Other, non-location-specific, information may be accessed via the following links:
