Highland Main Line Community Rail Partnership Preloader

Current Projects

We are delighted to announce we have now secured funding from the LNER Customer and Community Investment Fund and ScotRail to add to our funding from the Basil Death Trust. This has all taken slightly longer than first anticipated as we were involved in Community Rail in the City in May and our "Highland Fling" event took up almost three months!

 

We are now contacting all the partners for this exciting project and our aim is to commence in the Autumn term later this year. We are beginning with the History and Heritage of the Highland Main Line and will give an update after the Summer holidays.

 

Many thanks to our funders, it promises to be an exciting project for us to work on.

We are still working on the Heritage Panels, so far we have had a template designed and collected masses of archive material and photos, the hard work of editing and choosing which ones to use will have to be a winter job and then we will have 2 for each of our 8 Stations with Heritage Information particular to that Station for visitors and locals to enjoy.

And finally...

 

Part of our Station Audit has thrown up some interesting Heritage Station furniture which we are very keen to restore and retain. We hope to work on the restoration of Dalwhinnie Station Clock, which has been painted over, as it had stopped working and we have also found 4 Macfarlane benches at Pitlochry Station and 2 at Blair Atholl in need of restoration, sadly the ones from Dunkeld & Birnam have disappeared. Also Carrbridge has a fine high Victorian desk in one of the rooms which we would like to retain. These assets are all part of the Highland Main Line Heritage and must be preserved.
