This line is divided into a number of portions.
This was a single track railway from a junction north of Beatock station to Moffat.
Beattock is a village but it had a fine station with superior buildings. This was a three platform station on the Glasgow-Carlisle main line. There were two main line platforms and a bay at the north end, on the east side, for the Moffat Railway. Going north from Beattock is the climb to Beattock Summit.
This fine small terminus was at the north end of a short single track branch from Beattock. The line was just under two miles long and opened in 1883. Moffat had been bypassed by the Caledonian Railway when it opened to Beattock in 1847, extended north in 1848. This short branch added Moffat to the railway network.
