Once-derelict Cardrona station used to stand in isolation when seen from the A72 but is increasingly being crowded out by housing. There is now a proper village which didn't exist when the station closed in 1962. The trackbed immediately to the west of the station is being built over and the old platelayers' hut (qv) has gone. I am sure Nashy's Coffee House is fine, but it is not a name I would have chosen - even if I were called Nashy.
