Junction


Name and dates

Broomhill Junction (1866-1968)

Opened on the Strathspey Railway.


Description

This was the point of divergence for the Strathspey Railway from the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway. It was not a junction in the conventional sense.

The lines ran out alongside each other as two single track railways from Boat of Garten. This gave the appearance of a double track railway. Doing so reduced costs as a signal box was not necessary at the junction. The two lines had different colours of ballast, running side by side.
