Jump to: navigation, search

The Mallaig Extension Railway runs from Banavie Junction (New) on the Banavie Pier branch of the West Highland Railway to Mallaig.

The previous "Banavie Junction" closer to Fort William was renamed "Mallaig Junction" upon opening of the Mallaig Extension Railway. The line is still open as part of the West Highland Line.

The railway received Royal Assent in 31 July 1894. The line opened on 1 April 1901. It is famous for the concrete structures built along the line by Robert (Concrete Bob) McAlpine, the most notable of which is Glenfinnan Viaduct.
