During August 1999, RCAHMS conducted a photographic survey of Dalmally Railway Station and signal box. The purpose of this survey was to enhance and augment the existing holdings of the National Monuments Record Scotland.

Visited by RCAHMS (MKO), August 1999.

This intermediate station on the Crianlarich-Oban secondary line of the former Caledonian Railway was opened (by thw Callander and Oban Railway) on 1 May 1877. It was grouped into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923, and remains in regular use by passenger traffic.

The station is exceptional on this line in being of red sandstone construction. The down platform retains a granite heron-fountain, but this is inoperative, as is the signal box.

The Callender and Oban railway line engineered by B and E Blyth, was promoted as an extension of the Dunblane and Callender Railway and became part of the Caldonian. From 1873 it terminated at a terporary station at Tyndrum, the section from Tyndrum to Oban was finally opened in 1880. The two remaining station houses on this part of the line are at Taynuilt and Oban. (Historic Scotland)
