Name and dates

Oban Shed (1880-1962)


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.
