Portsoy [1st]

The original 1859 terminus of the Banff, Portsoy and Strathisla Railway at Portsoy, seen from the south west in 2012. The station served passengers for a mere 25 years, becoming redundant on the opening of the GNSR route westward in 1884, at which point a new through station was opened behind the camera (see 39179). The wooden trainshed has since acquired a front wall complete with doors and windows and is now part of an Aberdeenshire Council Civic Amenity and Recycling Centre.
