Although the West Highland Lines actually fork at Crianlarich, the two branches are still close enough that Tyndrum has two stations. I was thus able to arrive at Upper Tyndrum for a short walk across to Tyndrum Lower.

This square building sits on the platform, holding a kettle. Is it a signalbox? There are no signal levers or anything:

Although there is a diagram inside the box:

Just north of the box is the station building itself, which offers shelter to passengers on either platform:

Because the station is on an island platform, an underpass is used to cross the line. Here's the exit from the station:
