Connel Ferry Station information from

This was a large station.
Today it has been reduced to a single platform.
Formerly the station had a main platform (with a bay platform at both ends) and an island platform with two faces.
There were signalboxes at either end and a large signal gantry at the west end.
This was the east facing junction for the Ballachulish Branch (Callander and Oban Railway). Today a goods siding, for oil, remains at the east end of the station.
