Friends of “Off The Rails” get it back on track

Friends of “Off The Rails” get it back on track

By Kath Walters

Dunkeld’s Railway Station will once again become a meeting place, but this time in a whole new guise. 

The lovely old building, neglected for years after trains to Dunkeld stopped running, was revived in 2007 by a group of local artists and used for studios and a gallery called Off The Rails. 

When the building was declared uninhabitable in 2011, this energetic community project came to an end. 

But Dunkeld sculptor, Trevor Flinn, is working with a bunch of local artists and community members to revive the much-loved artists’ space.

His dream is to provide a working and learning room (studio) for artists and groups that need a “messy” space, and a “discovery space” (gallery) for community members and groups to exhibit their work. 

By restoring the space Flinn aims for the Dunkeld Railway Station to become heritage listed. To experience the charm of the place first hand, Dunkeld Museum take visitors on their ‘town walk’ to include the station. 

Trevor is building a network of friends to help sustain him on the (long) journey of reinvention ahead. 

We are big supporters, and we would love you to join us in supporting Trevor by emailing him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
