A bridge not far enough

Your story and pictures of the road-from-rail Creagan Bridge conversion (NCE last week) brought back memories of seeing this bridge carrying trains in the early 1960s. The line did not run from Oban to Fort William as reported, but terminated at Ballachulish. To have gone further north would have required another bridge, across Loch Leven, as has now been built for road traffic.
