It is claimed than Dundee is the only surface network station in Britain which is below sea level. I can't guarantee its uniqueness, but its depth is certainly plausible: it's in a cutting only 100 yards from a sea wall lapped by the Firth of Tay, and could well be below the high tide mark. On 9 April 170 419 takes an Aberdeen to Glasgow service out of Platform 1. Above it, through the shrubbery, is a ship's mast (of RRS Discovery): another bit of evidence.
