Station


Name and dates

Aberfeldy (1865-1965)

Opened on the Aberfeldy Branch (Inverness and Perth Junction Railway).


Description

This was a two platform terminus in the east of Aberfeldy. The main platform could accommodate a long train alongside the station building and had a run-round loop and the short platform could take a few coaches and was at the east end of the station.

The station building had something of the style of Pitlochry's main building; two crow steps gables but with a building length canopy. The original timber building was a reconstruction of the building which had been erected at the abortive Rafford station.

There was a goods yard at the east end of the station and on the north side of the line. A single ended one road locomotive shed, Aberfeldy Shed, was reached from the platform's loop line.

The signal box was east of the station, on the south side of the platform lines with the engine shed to its south.

The station, box and line closed in 1965.

The station site is now a car park.

To the east is Aberfeldy Distillery, which was formerly served by the railway.
