FARSAP logo  Greenloaning

Nowadays, Greenloaning is only opened occasionally to break up the long section between Dunblane (formerly Oban Junction) and Blackford. Filming was carried out on one of the rare opportunities when signallers were being trained in the working of the box preparatory to a number of additional services to be run over a period of several days. The location is rural with the nearby station closing in 1956.

The geographic location of the signal box 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. The map can be scrolled to the other nearby locations mentioned in the video. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.

This video is intended for viewing at a maximum screen resolution of 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high. Please be aware that viewing at a larger size may result in a loss of clarity and a 'grainy' appearance.
