Station


Name and dates

Blackford (1851-1956)

Opened on the Scottish Central Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station with a goods yard at the west end, south side of the line.

The signal box survives here, on the east side of the level crossing to the east of the former station. The station building also survives on the former westbound platform. From the platform side, this resembled a house with dormer windows (removed since closure of the station). A similar building exists at the former Kinbuck station. A small timber waiting room was on the Perth platform.

Close by the station is Highland Spring who may make use of the sidings here in the future. At present, the goods yard is largely lifted and sees no traffic.

Local

Highland Spring has a bottling plant nearby the former station, just to the south.

At the other, south, end of Blackford from the former station is the Tullibardine Distillery .
