Station


Name and dates

Bowhouse (1840-1930)

Opened on the Slamannan Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station with three sidings. The platform was on the east side and built in timber. There was a stone built loading bank. The goods shed was in the yard, but not rail served.

The original station was slightly different, with a passing loop on a corner and siding on the east side. With enlargements to the station the nearby road to the west was realigned.

To the north was Bowhouse Junction, junction for the Bowhouse Branch.

The A801 has been realigned to cut through to the south of the former station on the level. The stone loading bank remains and the mound of the timber platform.
