Station


Name and dates

Birnie Road Siding (1869-1951)

Opened on the Montrose and Bervie Railway.


Description

This was a halt on the line between Montrose and Inverbervie.

The addition of the word 'Road' to a station is not usually a good sign, it probably means the place named is rather distant. The Birnie farms perhaps got off quite lightly, they are under a mile west of this former halt, although uphill from the halt close to the beach.

The platform was on the west side of the line, just north of a level crossing.

The former railway is now a footpath.
