Ardrossan Shed [GSW] [2nd] (1878-1966)
Opened on the Largs Branch (Glasgow and South Western Railway).
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
This shed was within the triangle of lines at Castlehill, just east of Ardrossan Town station and north of Ardrossan South Beach. It replaced an older shed at Ardrossan Town.
This four road double ended shed could be access from the north and east.
British Railways assigned the code 67D.
After closure the site has remained clear, as has the lifted west to north curve. There is a reversing spur on the site, accessed from Ardrossan South Beach.
