Name and dates

Oban Shed (1880-1962)

Opened on the Callander and Oban Railway.


Description

This shed was south of Oban station and access from the junction for the Lochavuillin Goods at Oban Goods Junction. Access to the goods yard was from the south and a reversal was necessary to reach the shed.

British Railways assigned the code 31C and sub shed Ballachulish Shed. It was subsequently re-coded 63E, 63D and 63C. It closed in 1962.

The turntable pit still remains and a disused oil siding exists at roughly its location.
