Name and dates

Aberfeldy (1865-1965)

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


Description

This was a two platform terminus. 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.

There was a goods yard at the east end of the station and single ended one road locomotive shed.

The station site is now a car park.
