Branch Lines of Strathearn, Tourists, Tatties, and Trains
Sir Walter Scott once described Perthshire as â€˜the most varied and the most beautifulâ€™ county in Scotland. Within Perthshire, Strathearn fully merits this accolade, with Upper Strathearn renowned as a tourist destination, and the lower reaches being a rich agricultural area. For over a century, the branch lines of Strathearn were an integral part of this district. This comprehensive history of those lines is the culmination of research over fifty years, drawing on many original documents and contemporary accounts. Lavishly illustrated with nearly 3 photographs, many never previously published, and over 2 other illustrations, it traces the development of these branch lines from the opening of the Crieff Junction Railway in 1856 to the closure of the last section of line in 1967. This book also details the part these railways played in the development of the district and the communities they served, including a chapter on Gleneagles Hotel, all of which will be of interest to the general reader as well as the railway enthusiast.
