The Scottish Central Railway was formed in 1845 to link Caledonian Railway near Castlecary to the Scottish Midland Junction Railway at Perth. The engineers for the line were Joseph Locke and a Mr Errington while the contractor was Thomas Brassey in partnership with William Mackenzie and Robert Stephenson[1].

In time it absorbed several other railway companies in the area, prior to becoming part of the Caledonian Railway in 1865.
