Dalmally lost all its semaphore signals on 9 February 1986, in preparation for Radio Electronic Token Block (RETB) signalling. RETB was commissioned on 27 March 1988, resulting in the closure of Dalmally signal box, amongst others. Dalmally is an RETB token exchange point, but with 'long section tokens' being available between Tyndrum Lower and Taynuilt, it is not necessary for every train to exchange tokens there.
The Train Protection & Warning System was installed in 2003.
There are six departures in each direction Mondays to Saturdays, eastbound to Glasgow Queen Street and westbound to Oban. On weekdays only, an additional out and back trip between here and Oban operates in the late afternoon. On Sundays, there are three departures each way throughout the year, plus a fourth in the summer months only. The additional service runs through from and to Edinburgh Waverley rather than Glasgow.
