Aviemore Shed (1892-1968)
Aviemore Shed (1978-)
This is a working shed, used by the preserved Strathspey Railway.
This shed opened at Aviemore in 1898, the junction between the Highland Railway's lines to Inverness and Forres. The shed is a four road shed, approached from the south. William Roberts was the architect.
Going north west from Aviemore to Inverness the Slochd Summit is crossed, locomotives from Aviemore being available to assist. Also nearby were the climbs to Dava and, following the closure in 1920 of Kingussie Shed, Druimuachdar Summit.
British Railways assigned the code 60B, with Boat of Garten Shed as a sub shed.
After closure track was lifted, but was subsequently restored by the Strathspey Railway [Preserved] which operates the shed.
