Carmuirs East Junction 1901-2017
The junction here dates from 1882 when the south to east side of the triangle was opened by the Caledonian Railway.
The geographic location of the signal box and junction can be seen on a current OS Map. The map will place this location at the centre of the map panel, roll the mouse over the icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.
