Description

This box opened in 1900 when the line from Blair Atholl, to the south east, was doubled.

In 1901 the line was doubled beyond the box to Dalnaspidal.

The box was renamed from Dalnacardoch to Dalanraoch in 1911.

The box closed in 1942 when it was replaced by a new box, Dalanraoch Box [2nd], three quarters of a mile to the east. This was during a wartime resignalling which led to the shortening of sections with the opening of Edendon Signal Box to the west.
