This line is open. Passenger services are provided by ScotRail from Inverness to Aviemore, Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Stations remain open at Aviemore and Carr Bridge.
The line was built by the Highland Railway to counter competing plans, such as extending the Invergarry and Fort Augustus Railway north to Inverness (provided a good route from Glasgow controlled by the North British Railway) and another plan for a line extending the Great North of Scotland Railway from Boat of Garten to Inverness by a similar route.
These locations are along the line.
