The line runs through farmland to the south
Description of route
This line was formerly double track but is
now single. There are no passing places on the route of the former Ayr and Maybole
Railway and the line is signalled from Ayr.
(Ayr and Dalmellington Railway)
There was, briefly, a station here until the
line was extended south to Girvan. It was open between between 13 October 1856
and 1 December 1859 and was called Maybole Junction.
(Maybole and Girvan Railway)
The original Maybole terminus was left as a
short branch when the line was extended south to Girvan by the Maybole
and Girvan Railway. The former station site was to the east of the existing
line, in the north of Maybole and is now a small industrial estate. The track
alignment to the north still has the curve away from the original alignment.
