Name and dates

Auldbar Road (1848-1956)

Opened on the Arbroath and Forfar Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station by Balgavies Loch.

The platforms were to the west of a road overbridge and goods yard to the east. The goods sidings, on either side of the line, were approached from the west.

There was a station house at street level, above the station, on the north side of the line and east side of the road. This still stands as a private house. The signal box ('C listed) still stands too, on the north side of the line at a lower level, east of the road bridge.

The station is in great condition given how long it has been closed.
