Callander Shed (1858-1925)
This shed was east of Callander (Dreadnought) station. It was located at the older terminus, Callander [1st].
It was a stone built two road shed opened in 1858 by the Dunblane, Doune and Callander Railway. (There was also a shed at Dunblane Junction, Dunblane.) It became a sub shed of Stirling Shed [CR].
The shed was in the east of the terminus yard. It was located on the north side of the original line and approached from the east over the turntable.
With the extension west by the Callander and Oban Railway in 1870 that line now passed round the north side of the shed. Callander and Oban Junction was to the east. The shed and Callander [1st] were now on a short branch.
The shed remained standing for many years after closure. The goods yard remained in use until line closure.
The railway closed in 1965.
