Name and dates

Auchengray (1848-1966)

Opened on the Caledonian Railway.


Description

Auchengray was a three platform station to the north of a level crossing. There were two platforms on the main line and a bay (added around the time the Wilsontown branch opened, 1860 with a west to south curve creating a triangle in 1866) at the north end of the northbound platform. A small goods yard was at the north end, west side of the line. The signal box was on the south side of the level crossing, west side of the line.

A railway cottage remains on the west side of the line, just north of the level crossing. Platform mounds partially remain. The box closed in 1966, replaced by automatic barriers.

Auchengray village itself is around 3/4 of a mile north east.
