Names and dates

Beith (1840-1924)
Beith North (1924-1951)

Opened on the Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station with the main building on the up platform. There was a goods yard at the north end, west side and approached from the north.

The station was renamed Beith Town in 1924 to distinguish it from Beith Town (called 'Beith' until 1953) on the former Glasgow and Kilmarnock Joint Railway, just after both stations came into London, Midland and Scottish Railway ownership.

Little remains of the station, although the road crossing at the south end of the site still loops round where the station was located.
