Fort William Headshunt

A summer 1971 view of the cramped headshunt from Fort William station - until its relocation in 1975 to make way for the road builders. An imaginative 1960s idea to extend the line south to cross Loch Leven and join the Ballachulish branch (allowing closure of the expensively maintained route across Rannoch Moor) came to nothing.
