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.

Earrann fuaim bho 2006 anns an cluinnear Hannah Alexander, tè às a' Chananaich, a' bruidhinn air na togalaichean a bh' aig an rèile.

Hannah: Oh you see we had, there was a goods shed, an engine shed and the water place where they filled the engine with water. It was just opposite the, opposite the terrace - we call that the Railway Terrace, you know the six houses. From the end of the terrace right to there, that was, this was a field. This was a field. And the line went along just opposite the terrace. It went along there and then there was another one going to the loading bank and the goods shed and that, and then they joined up there, along there, became one. Because there was the rails that went into the loading bank, and then the one that came here which was the- Oh there must - wait a minute - there must have been two. There must have been two. Because there would have been one, you know, the actual, where the actual train came to the station. And then there must have been another little rail where they came to the - where the engine got its water. And that was opposite, if I can recollect. And then the turntable was on the left of the end terrace house. It went round - there's some of the stones still there, in, I think, probably in the garden of the end house because turntables were - You know there weren't all that many turntables, I don't suppose? They would be just in, sort of at the end of the lines in the bigger stations.

Interviewer: Yes, yes. There was probably - Was there one in Strathpeffer? No, it went backwards, or something, did it?

Hannah: I think it did, because that was just a little side line to Strathpeffer. That wasn't the main West Coast line, no.

Interviewer: No.

Hannah: No, that wasn't the main West Coast line. It was a little sort of eh, what did they call it? I forget what they called it.

Interviewer: Yes, a branch, or-

Hannah: Yes, a little branch line, I think. But, of course if we went, going to Inverness or Dingwall you changed at Muir of Ord.
