Station


Name and dates

Carron (1863-1965)

Opened on the Strathspey Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station with a goods yard to the north, approached from the east. There was a level crossing to the immediate west of the station, access to the Imperial Distillery.

The stone built station building, on the eastbound platform, and platforms (partly infilled) remain, as does the loading bank.

When first opened this was a single platform station, the platform with the building, and no loop. The distillery followed the railway.

Sidings to the west of the station, accessed from the west, served the Imperial Distillery. One served the north side of the Imperial Distillery warehousing and one the south side via which, by reversal, the distillery itself could be reached. Level crossing tracks remained embedded for many years following closure of the railway.

The Bridge of Carron is to the east of the former station.
