Object Detail


Name/title notes
The Caledonian Railway Co was set up in 1845 with the Caledonian Railway Act, which authorised a continuation northwards of the Lancaster & Carlisle line, part of which was to become the London & North Western Railway. The route was carried to Perth and later, by the construction of several lines that all eventually became part of the Caledonian, to Aberdeen.
The Caledonian Railway Co also operated steamer and canal traffic including the Forth & Clyde Canal Co which was run as a subsidiary company from 1867 to 1923.
The Caledonian Railway Co became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923. In 1948 the LMS became part of British Railways on the nationalisation of the railways.
