The major losses of the railways services in the area of Perthshire came as the result of the Beeching Axe and its aftermath in the mid-to-late 1960s. [The Beeching Axe refer to the reduction of route network and restructuring of the Railways in Great Britain outlined in two reports: The Reshaping of British Railways (1963) and The Development of the Major Railway Trunk Routes (1965), written by Dr Richard Beeching and published by the British Railways Board.]
