This line runs through rural Aberdeenshire, an area of
farmland and a fishing port at Banff.
Description of route
From Turriff to Macduff.
This was the terminus of the Banff,
Macduff and Turriff Junction Railway.
Very little now remains of the station at Plaidy, just
this damp cutting. The view looks southwards.
This view looks towards Turriff. The track was to the
left of the building. To the left of the building today are many lean-to sheds
which are attached to the station building.
Banff and Macduff
This was the original terminus of the line. It was considered
to be too far from the town and harbour, the line was re-aligned and taken closer
to the town. Only the turntable pit remains today.
The name for this station should be obvious from the
photograph! The town on the other side of the bridge is Banff. The old station
building is on the right. The terminus at Macduff is further right.
This was the terminus of the line. The left photograph
shows the terminus building. The right-hand photograph shows the locomotive
shed. The line passed to the right of the shed on its way to Turriff. The station
building is behind the camera.
