These locations are along the line.
This junction was to the west of Forfar [2nd station, not so much south as more north west, indeed it was further north than Forfar North Junction which was east of Forfar [1st]. However in railway terms it was south of the station as it was closer to Perth.
This was a two platform station with a passing loop. The main station building was on the westbound platform. There was a cottage in the station yard and a goods yard approached from the west. The signal box was at the west end of the eastbound platform. It opened with the line.
This was a single platform station, on the south side of the single track line, with a pair of sidings opposite the platform, approached from the east. There was a station building on the platform and station house to the west.
Located in a rural location to the north of Careston this was a two platform station with a passing loop and the main station building on the westbound platform.
