Monday 19 March 2018 saw the formal unveiling of the plaque awarded to Network Rail Property for the work undertaken at the Grade C listed signalbox and station on the West Highland line at Currour. The award, which was announced at the National Railway Heritage Awards held in London on 7 December 2016, recognised the work achieved in restoring the building as a result of a 15-month programme starting in September 2014 that cost £250,000. The citation for the award noted: ‘This is an exemplary project that injects new life into an otherwise redundant structure. Given the condition of the building at the start of the renovation, it is wonderful to view the completed works and the quality of the finish.’
