Name and dates

Ardler (1837-1956)

Opened on the Newtyle and Coupar Angus Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station. There was a level crossing to the east of the station and a goods yard to the west, on the north side of the line and reached by reversal. The station buildings were of Caledonian Railway style typical of the line.

There was a siding to the east of the level crossing on the south side of the line, reached by reversing over the crossing. The signal box was on the west side of the level crossing, north side of the line.

The station closed to passengers in 1956. In 1967 the Strathmore line ceased to be a through route and the signal box here closed. The westbound line through the station was lifted.

The station house still stands, now a house. Level crossing gates survived for some time after complete closure in 1982.

East of the station was the early Washington station. Further east again was Ardler Junction for the Dundee and Newtyle Railway.
