Station


Name and dates

Duror (1903-1966)

Opened on the Ballachulish Branch (Callander and Oban Railway).


Description

This former two platform station survives as a house, the platforms being the garden. The station building is almost unaltered from the railway period, with some additions. The platforms survive. It is the most intact station surviving on the former line. A number of railway cottages also remain nearby making this an unusually well preserved location.

Both lines had curved to form the loop, neither the southbound nor the northbound being the faster line. There was a goods yard on the east south/east side approached from the north/east. There was a siding opposite, approached from the northbound platform. The box was at the east end of the southbound platform.

The loop was taken out in 1927 and box closed, the line by the former southbound platform, and next to the main building, being retained.

Goods sidings remains accessible using a ground frame. The line closed in 1966.

The station is south west from Duror itself.
