Murdoch Paterson, chief engineer of the Highland Railway, was commissioned to draw up the Ullapool Railway plans (see image 74177) for submission to Parliament in 1890, as described in Andrew Drummond^s A Quite Impossible Proposal: How Not to Build a Railway, published on 24th September. Given ^the amount of effort that the Highland Railway Company put into making sure that none of these [Ullapool Railway] schemes succeeded^, Paterson^s involvement was perhaps surprising!
