The Railway Cottages - Plean owned by Caledonian Railway Co first appeared on Valuation Rolls in 1885. They did not appear in 1875 Valuation Rolls indicating they were built during this 10 year period.

Good day,
Just read the string of communication re Railway Cottages from 3 years ago and just wanted to add to Eric8751 that interestingly enough My Grandfather (William Gebbie) was born in the same cottages in 1908. My great grandfather James Gebbie was also a railway surfaceman in 1908, at listed at the same address ”Railway Cottages Plean” He would have moved into that cottage after he between 1900 and 1908. So according to Eric8751 our grandfathers lived side by side at some point Depending on when they moved there.
You did say you were planning to travel from your home in Australia and make a visit to research your family. Did that happen?
