Caledonian Railway (Brechin)

The Caledonian Railway (Brechin) Ltd is a private limited company formed by a group of steam railway enthusiasts, the Brechin Railway Preservation Society, with the object of operating a railway service on the former Caledonian Railway line between Brechin and Montrose. This line was closed for passenger traffic during the early 1950s but final closure did not occur until the early 1980s.

The line has now been re-instated for the four miles (6km) between Brechin railway station and Bridge of Dun railway station and since 1993 trains have run at weekends during the summer as well as on special occasions at other times of the year. The two railway stations have also been refurbished. Although the line originally went all the way to Montrose, which is still a station on the main rail network, there are no immediate plans to link the Brechin line back into the main rail network. However this is still seen as a long term aim as it would only require the re-instatement of a short length of track.
