Keith West Signalbox

Just north of the west junction at Keith this view looks north along the former Highland Railway's Buckie and Portessie Branch in 1997. The southern portion of this line remained in use until 1966 for freight to Aultmore Distillery whereas the rest of the line had a very chequered past. The 'Heilan Line' was the first line to open to Buckie, closed and lifted in the First World War, re-laid and not re-opened except to Buckie (HR) for freight, it was lifted again in the Second World War.
