Ashfield Siding

Opened on the Scottish Central Railway.


This siding was at Ashfield, north of the former Ashfield Tunnel. It was on the west side of the line and approached from the north. The siding served a loading bank with a crane. Ashfield Mill was to the west.

There was a temporary Ashfield North signal box between 1890 and 1891. This was during the opening out of Ashfield Tunnel (also quoted as roughly 1888).
