This is a railway works on the south side of Kilmarnock station, at its west end. It was initially opened as a works for the Class 155 to 153 contract. The works is known as the Caledonia Works after the original Barclays works it replaced.

This was the site of the goods yard of the Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway. Approach was originally from the north west at Kilmarnock Junction, the Dalry direction. This has been altered to be from the line to Barassie.

Prior to the 1990 relocation of the railway works, from Caledonia Works on the south side of West Langlands Street, the sidings formed the exchange yard with the works.
