Alloa Marshalling Yard (1957-1987)
Also known as Alloa New Yard and Alloa New Marshalling Yard.
This yard was location to the west of Alloa and east of Cambus. It was to the south side of the mainline and had a connection to the line to Alloa Swing Bridge. A watertower existed to the east end of the site. The yard was progressively cut back from the 1970s until closure in 1987 when the loop at Cambus came into use.
The yard was probably established here when the new NCB colliery at Glenochil was developed. With that mine being a disappointment and closed at an early date the yard was cut back.
