An Entity of Type: company, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

The North British, Arbroath and Montrose Railway was a company established by Act of Parliament in 1871 to construct and operate a railway line from north of Arbroath via Montrose to Kinnaber Junction, 38 miles (61 km) south of Aberdeen. The company was originally a subsidiary of the North British Railway but it was absorbed into its parent in 1880. Construction of the line was delayed and a viaduct had to be dismantled and rebuilt following the Tay Bridge disaster. Rivalry between the companies on the east and west coast routes from London to Aberdeen, the "Race to the North", culminated in 1895 – the crucial point was at Kinnaber Junction where the two routes converged into a single railway.
