Names and dates

Luib Crossing (1918-1922)
Luib Summit (1922-)

Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.


Description

This was a loop between Achnasheen, to the east, and Glencarron Platform to the west. The signal box opened in 1918 and closed around 1922. It was also, perhaps more commonly, known as Loan Crossing.

The crossing was installed during the Great War when the line was taken over by the Admiralty to transfer dis-assembled mine parts manufactured in the United States which were landed at Kyle of Lochalsh and taken east to US Naval Base No 17 at Dalmore Distillery near Alness.
