Names and dates

Bonnybridge Goods
Bonnymuir Goods

Opened on the Scottish Central Railway.

Description

This goods yard was on the north side of the line and approached by reversal. It was a little east of Greenhill Lower Junction. The Bonnymuir Iron Works was immediately to the west of the buffers over Broomhill Road.

The goods yard was renamed Bonnymuir rather than Bonnybridge when the Bonnybridge Canal Branch (Caledonian Railway) opened in 1886.

By reversal from the goods yard the Chattan Stove and Iron Works was reached.

There was a signal box on the south/east side of the line. This closed in 1973.

Local

The road serving the iron works ran on to cross the railway on its way to the Rough Castle Roman Fort.
