Ballencrieff (1846-1847)

Opened on the North British Railway.


This was an extremely short lived station, most likely located to the north of Ballencrieff House and farm.

Ballencrieff was located 2 miles, 60 chains from Longniddry and 1 mile, 60 chains from Drem, which places it at Ballencrieff siding.

Ballencrieff siding, served from the west and on the south side of the line, existed here until 1959. There was a loading bank and signal box to the west, south side of the line (not shown in OS map of 1894 but shown on that of 1906).
