Name and dates

Almondbank (1858-1951)

Opened on the Perth, Almond Valley and Methven Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station on a single track railway with a goods yard at its west end. The station had a tall narrow two storey building, which remains today in use as a house. The platform extended from the goods yard east beyond the station building and bridge carrying the A85 overhead.

To the east was a short branch which served the Almondbank Naval Stores. This branch was approached from the west.

The goods yard was approached from the west and had a loading bank and goods shed at the west end of the passenger platform.

The station building still stands, a fine house.

Almondbank itself is to the north, stretched out along Main Street. It has expanded in recent years.
