Portsoy [1st]

The 1859 terminus of the Banff, Portsoy and Strathisla Railway at Portsoy, closed to passengers as long ago as 1884 when the line was extended west. The surviving structure, seen here in May 2012, is currently part of a local council depot. To the right of the fence a line ran down to Portsoy Harbour passing below Seafield Street (A98) through the tunnel visible in the centre background. The building housing the booking office and passenger entrance still stands at the north west corner of the trainshed 39409.
