Second Spring for Mull Rail

Listen to this article

The Isle of Mull railway is to be crated up and exported to Balloch on the shores of Loch Lomond.

It’s the ‘high road’ and ‘yon bonnie braes’ for the narrow gauge railway which ran from the ferry terminal at Craignure to Torosay Castle.

The service ceased a year ago when the Laird of Torosay Castle had to sell up.

The new line, once laid, would connect Balloch railway station with the steamer pier and Loch Lomond Shores, the shopping centre.

The line will follow the old Balloch Central to Balloch Pier line that closed in 1986.

Says Mull Rail director Nick Dodson, “This is a really exciting opportunity. The proposed railway fulfils a real transport need and would give the equipment, engines and rolling stock a fresh lease of life.”
