Description of route

Top 

This railway runs from Polmont to Carmuirs. The original junction at Carmuirs faced north towards Larbert. A chord was later added between Carmuirs West Junction and Carmuirs East Junction to allow a parallel line to the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway through Falkirk for lower speed local trains. There was a branch from Swing Bridge East Junction to the Carron Ironworks.
