Killin Junction

View towards Killin East Junction signal box at Easter 1966, with the main line to Callander to the right and the Killin branch dropping away to the left. Killin Junction was unusual in having no road access, with Table 33 of the BR timetable of the day referring to 'Killin Junction (Exchange Platform only)'. When the photographer and his family walked across the moor to the junction during a holiday from Edinburgh, they found a scene reminiscent of the Marie Celeste. Everything appeared intact, with the station log book still open at the final entry before the landslip in Glen Ogle had permanently closed the line between Callander and Crianlarich on 27th September 1965.
