Bha Rèile an Eilein Duibh na mheur de Rèile na Gàidhealtachd bho thùs. Bha e a' giùlan luchd-siubhail eadar 1894 agus 1951(bathar gu 1960) agus bha e a' ruith eadar Am Blàr Dubh agus A' Chananaich agus bha e a' stad aig stèiseanan anns a' Chaisteal Dhearg, Alan, Bun Lòchaidh agus Abhach.

San earrainn èisteachd seo bho na 1980an, tha fear a chleachd a bhith ag obair na phortair aig Rèile an Eilein Duibh a' cuimhneachadh nan trèanachan bathair.

'Many times the goods trains themselves were so heavy with potatoes, grain, maybe cattle going to the marts in Inverness and Dingwall, by the time they came to Munlochy Station the train had its full load. It would take maybe some of the traffic from Munlochy Station but on the incline, just beside Drumore Farm between Munlochy and Allangrange, it would shed half its load. It would then carry on to Allangrange, put its load into its siding there, come back to Munlochy, empty, pick up the rest, take it to Allangrange, pick up the full train, take it to Muir of Ord. Very often this happened. I've seen several times during dry weather, that there was so much pressure, shall we say, put on the coal engines that the steam, the smoke and the sparks were coming out of the train and setting fire to the woodlands, especially on the Allangrange Estate. Many times we had to put out fires on the Allangrange Estate and advise Major Cameron that the railwayside was on fire'
