Name and dates

Balavil Signal Box (1942-1947)

Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.


This 1942 wartime signal box controlled a loop on the single track 6 mile section between Kingussie (to the south west) and Kincraig (to the north east). The box was about midway, a little closer to Kingussie around the 2.5 miles north.

The box was closed after the war in 1947.

The railway is open, back to being a plain single track again.
