Drysdale Street Tunnel

The Station Hotel, Primrose Street, Alloa, built opposite the original Alloa railway station and seen here on 27 March 2008. The design of this strangely wedge-shaped building was determined by the route of the former Alloa Wagonway, via which loaded coal wagons came in from the left along the line of the current ring road (albeit pre-dating it by 200 years) and then swung south along what is now the walkway to the right of the Hotel, heading towards the Forth. An information point commemorating the Alloa Wagonway stands below the signpost on the right of the picture.
