Campbeltown

A section of the old light railway trackbed in Campbeltown has been converted into a footpath leading from the quayside up towards the High School. The powerful 2'3' gauge Barclay 0-6-2Ts must still have worked hard lifting their trains of day trippers up this 1:35 gradient as the line swung west away from the harbour and towards Machrihanish. See image 33469 for a map of the location in 1921.
