158710 pauses in the Up platform at Achnasheen with 2H84, the 15:22(SuO) Kyle - Inverness. Achnasheen loop has the same extra clearance between the running lines as Strathcarron and Garve. When the line was built, it was anticipated that fishing vessels could be transported by train between the canal at Dingwall and Loch Carron, so extra space was allowed for them at crossing points. The costs involved meant that the scheme never came to fruition but the three loops remain as built.
