Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dornoch Light Railway is an historic railway in Scotland that ran from The Mound on the Sutherland Railway to the county town of Sutherland, Dornoch. This railway is closed. This Railway was one of two railways in the North of Scotland built under the 1896 Light Railway Act, this allowed the line to be built to lower standards to save cost. The Railway started at a south-facing junction with the Sutherland Railway at The Mound station, departing trains turning right on a sharply falling gradient. Immediately bridging the River Fleet by a four-span viaduct the gradient brought trains to the Mound itself, actually a causeway built across the River Fleet by Thomas Telford in 1816 as part of road development in the region.show more
