Name and dates

Alloa Harbour (1851-1978)

Opened on the Stirling and Dunfermline Railway.


Description

This was a goods yard on the short branch from Alloa Harbour Junction and was north of the short lived Alloa Ferry station.

Sidings fanned out on the north side of Castle Street. To the south sidings served the east side of the Alloa Glass Works site (also served by the Alloa Waggonway). Later, after a reorganisation of the glass works, additional sidings were laid west across Glasshouse Road into the works.

There was a link west across Glasshouse Loan and Caledonian Road to the competing Alloa Goods [CR] yard.

To the north was the division between the lines to Alloa Harbour and to Alloa Wet Dock and Alloa Goods [NBR]. On the east side of this junction was Alloa Harbour signal box, closed in 1922.

The branch closed in 1977/78.
