Name and dates

Barrmill (1873-1962)

Opened on the Glasgow and Kilmarnock Joint Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station opened on the jointly owned Glasgow and Kilmarnock Joint Railway branch from Lugton Junction to Beith. This was built as a single track branch although many structures were built to accommodate a second track.

Later there were two tracks however, the platform being alongside the southern track which continued west to Beith. The northern track only continued a short distance west and served Dockra Ironstone Pit No 1 by reversal. Just to the east was Barrmill Junction.

The line was doubled from Lugton Junction to Barrmill Junction with the opening of the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway, a double track line from Barrmill to Ardrossan Montgomerie Pier.

There was a goods yard south of the station, served from the east.

The site has been redeveloped for housing.
