Forth and Clyde Junction Railway :: Shared Description
This line, now completely dismantled, covered a distance of 31 miles from Balloch, through Drymen Station (in Croftamie), to Stirling.
In 1853, Royal Assent was given to an Act of Parliament "for making a Railway commencing by a Junction with the Scottish Central Railway at Stirling, and terminating by a Junction with the Caledonian and Dumbartonshire Railway at Alexandria, to be called the 'Forth and Clyde Junction Railway'".
The railway opened in 1856. Passenger services ended for most of the line in 1934, although sections remained open for goods traffic until 1965. See Link
(at RAILSCOT) for further details, and Link
