Name and dates

Carmondean Junction (1986-2010)

Station code: National Rail
Opened on the Edinburgh and Bathgate Railway.


The single track line from Cawburn Junction divided here into two single track lines, running parallel and with the appearance of a double track railway, which ran west for over two miles to Bathgate [4th]. The northern line ran to the passenger station and southern to the car distribution sidings. The layout opened coinciding with the opening of the station in 1986.

For the re-opening of Airdrie to Bathgate in 2010 the line east was redoubled, work beginning in 2007, and lines to the west converted into a standard double track.

The location was east of Livingston [1st] station and west of the present Livingston North station.
