Name of creator
The Callander and Oban Railway Company was incorporated in July 1865 with the support of the Caledonian Railway, the result of many years of speculation about the opening up of the mineral resources of the Highlands. Construction work was slow, with funds running out completely for a time, but the line eventually opened in July 1880 and remained independent until it was absorbed by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923. The line closed in March 1966.
