From 'The Reshaping of British Railways' (Beeching Report - 1963) showing BR proposed withdrawal of passenger services. Black lines indicate 'all passenger services to be withdrawn', hatched red lines 'all stopping passenger services to be withdrawn'. Despite some dreadful closures, Scotland saw several survivors, including Kyle, the Far North, Shotts, Glasgow-Barrhead-Kilmarnock and Ayr-Stranraer. Note that not even Beeching proposed closure of St Andrews, Leven, Alloa, Grangemouth and Cowdenbeath-Kinross-Perth!
