Name and dates

Auchnagatt (1861-1965)

Opened on the Formartine and Buchan Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station with a passing loop. The stone station building, on the northbound platform, remains in use as a house. The southbound platform had a timber building.

There was a goods yard on the west side of the line, approached by the north end of the northbound line.

The station had two signal boxes. A small box at the north end to control the north end of the loop and a larger box at the south end to control the south end of the loop and access to the goods yard.

The platforms and stone station building remain.

The former station is known colloquially as 'The Gatt'.
