Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Scottish Central Railway Co was incorporated in July 1845 and the 57 mile line running between Perth and Larbert opened in 1848. This short line was first criticised as being of little commercial value, but the expansion of other railway companies meant that it soon became the focus for much of the transport carried on within the central belt and especially north of Perth. Because of its central position both the Caledonian Railway and the Edinburgh & Glasgow Railway were eager to acquire it.
In 1865 the Scottish Central Railway became part of the Caledonian Railway Co, which in turn became part of London, Midland and Scottish in 1923.
