Forres [1st]

View south to Forres over the first Forres station (1857). This station became surplus when the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway opened from Dunkeld to Forres and a new triangular junction station (1863) was laid out to the west of the original station. The original station seen here was left on a west-east goods loop. The new lines are behind the building. The view was from the North of Scotland Chemical Works, which made sulphuric acid amongst other chemicals, and was rail served. The original station building is long gone and the replacement largely cut back. Postcard in my collection.
