Bha Stèisean Leantrain bho thùs mar phàirt de Rathad Iarainn Inbhir Nis agus Siorrachd Rois, air an loidhne bho Inbhir Nis dhan Bhlàr Dhubh, eadar Bun Chraoibh agus Na Cluainean. Chaidh a fosgladh ann an 1862 agus dhùin I ann an 1960. Ach, bha aig Leantran ri fosgladh a-rithist thairis air aon deireadh sheachdain ann an 1982, agus chaidh a cleachdadh mar cheann-uidhe na loidhne fhad 's a bha obair càraidh a' dol air adhart air drochaid na clais-uisge aig Clach na h-Aire. Anns an earrann èisteachd seo bho 1982, tha Uilleam Mac na Ceàrdaich a' bruidhinn ri Uilleam Mac an Tòisich, an neach-comharraidh ann an Leantran, mu dheidhinn aon de na làithean a bu dripeile a bh' aige na obair. Cluinnear cuideachd Uilleam ag atharrachadh nan comharran anns a' bhogsa chomharran aig stèisean Leantrain.

[Signal Box sounds]

Interviewer: Well, what was happening then, Willie?

Well, that was the train leaving Clachnaharry, and I just belled it on to Muir of Ord there and pulled off the signals, and that's them clear to go to Muir of Ord now.

Interviewer: It's quite an effort pulling the signals, by the look of it.

Och, you get used to it. It's not too bad.

Interviewer: And what is this little thing you put in this little pouch that you, at the eng- that you hand to the engine driver?

It's called a tablet; it's the release for the signals. The driver must have one of these running between sections.

Interviewer: Now, coming from Inverness did he have a tablet?

He would have one from Rose Street to Clach, which he'll hand in, and he'll get a key from Clachnaharry - something similar to this one here - which he'll leave here, and he'll pick up this one, and he'll take it to Muir of Ord ,and he'll pick up one, you know just - It's his safeguard that the line is clear to the next signal box
