Chaidh Rathad-iarainn Inbhir Pheofharain agus an Eilein Sgitheanaich fhosgladh ann an 1870 ach cha deach e na b' fhaide na Port an t-Sròim air Loch Carrann. Bhiodh seachd bliadhna fichead eile ann mus ruigeadh e stad-crìche Chaol Loch Aillse. San earrainn seo, cluinnear Iain Tòmas (1914-1982), fear dhe na eachdraichean b' ainmeile ann am Breatainn, a' beachdachadh air uachdar na loidhne aig An Lùib. Chaidh a chlàradh air bòrd trèana shònraichte air turas gu Caol Loch Aillse ann an 1973.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is Luib, on the summit of the line, thirty-one and three quarter miles from Dingwall. It is also the watershed of the county and now we start dropping down towards Lochcarron. The summit is 646 feet above sea level. By this time you will realise that the promoters of the line and the engineers who built it hadn't their sorrows to seek. The promoters had great difficulty in getting enough money to carry the line forward. Work was always being stopped because enough money wasn't even forthcoming to pay the wages of the navvies. The principal idea was to get as quickly as possible under the shortest and easiest route to deep water, in the west. And, of course, that meant Lochcarron. At one time they decided that they hadn't enough funds to get any further than Attadale, which was the first approach to deep water. However, a few more people bought shares and they pushed on to Strome Ferry
