Name and dates

Bathgate Shed

Opened on the Edinburgh and Bathgate Railway.


Description

Bathgate shed was east of Bathgate Upper and on the north side of the line. This six road shed was replaced in 1954 with a new four road shed on the same site. Approach was from the east.

British Railways assigned the code 64F.

The shed remained standing after closure right up until the preparations for the re-opening of the Airdrie to Bathgate line. It was demolished and the site is now the car park for the new Bathgate station, built immediately to the south.

The original shed in Bathgate was alongside Bathgate [1st] station.
