Glengarnock Iron Works

From Glengarnock Ironworks a line headed west to serve ironstone pits and also south to serve coal mines in the Dalry area. From the ironworks the line descended to and then crossed the B777. After crossing the river Garnock, where the abutments still serve to support a footbridge, it headed due west along what is now Balgray Road and on into Loadingbank. It pre-dated construction of the G&SWR Lochwinnoch loop line so when the G&SWR line was built it crossed the line by this bridge which as can be seen accommodated the mineral railway on the left side and the road on the right. View looks west towards Loadingbank.
