Crianlarich sign

Crianlarich is the station on the West Highland lines where the train divides, with the front half heading to Oban and the rear to Fort William and Mallaig. The pause while this happens gives passengers a chance for fresh air, cigarettes, dog exercise, and in my case station photos.

Looking south along the line:

This rather tetchy sign is on the side of the station building. (If the tea room is still open at all, it wasn't either of the times I was there...)

Crianlarich tearoom sign

To the north of the station building is a smaller building with a chimney:
