Name and dates

Mallaig Shed

Opened on the Mallaig Extension (West Highland Railway).

Description

This was a single road locomotive shed on the west (sea) side of Mallaig station. It was approached from the south and had a turntable on its west side. A line extended from the south to the pier, running between the station and the locomotive shed.

After the withdrawal of steam the shed survived in various uses until the 1980s when a new road was brought into Mallaig from the south along the shoreline when it was demolished.
