PRICE: £14.95
PAGES: p/b; 208pp; 216x138mm; numerous illustrations and photographs.


The Callander & Oban Railway: this volume tells in vivid detail, with much hitherto unpublished material, the fascinating story of the building, development and working of one of the major railways of Scotland's north-west coast, the Callander & Oban. Like the West Highland, the Callander & Oban was a way of life, a colourful institution, with an extremely unusual and varied history. Today, almost miraculously after closures of the 1960s, the most picturesque section remains open. First published in 1966 but updated to 1990.

The History of the Railways of the Scottish Highlands comprises five independent volumes, of which this is one. Originally conceived and published by the genius of publishers David & Charles, the series is now cherished and maintained in Scotland by House of Lochar, Isle of Colonsay.

Railways of the Scottish Highlands Series

The five books which follow tell the unique stories of the railways that penetrated some of Europe's most difficult terrain and opened up scenery as dramatic as may be seen from any train, anywhere. Remarkably, at least part of all five systems are still in use today, some carrying heavier seasonal passenger traffic than ever before. All these books include colour as well as numerous black and white illustrations, whilst appendices list all major facts like openings and closures of sections and stations.
