TAYNUILT RAILWAY CREST

On 9 November in my role as chairman of the Railway Heritage Committee, I handed over the Callander & Oban Railway wooden crest to Ian Fox of CalMac. The crest, which bears the date 1879 comes from the now-destroyed station building at Taynuilt and will be on permanent display in the CalMac terminal at Oban. Taynuilt station was opened in 1880 and the original station building where the wooden crest was located was destroyed in a fire. The crest survived and has been preserved and restored.
