Arrochar of course was the terminating point of the Push- Pull shuttle from Craigendoran which was worked by the super little ex-NB C15 tank locos.
A couple of shots with one of the last locos to work the service, 67474 which was built by the Yorkshire Engine Co in 1913. Fitted with push and pull equipment fairly late on in BR days, she was one of the last in service being withdrawn in April 1960.
The service later went over to a diesel railbus succumbing eventually to the Beeching axe.

At Craigendoran. The train actually had the luxury of a toilet!

Classic shot well on the way high above Loch Long I think.

Another Arrochar arrival in January 1989 as 37423 and 37404 cross with North and Southbound WHL trains in the final days of loco haulage for daytime services.

On the occasion of photographing the two Type 2s at Arrochar I had arrived on the 1035 from Queen Street to Oban. This was a summer extra train as far as I can recall and was worked by a Haymarket based Met Cam DMU triple set.
