This oil siding is no longer in use and the connection has been taken out. The oil siding was all that remained of the very much cut back goods facilities and locomotive shed in Oban.

Oil deliveries continued until the early 1990s. A second oil depot, for Caledonian MacBrayne and also closed, was located at the station pier.
