Carron Junction (1908-1968)


This was the junction between the railway to the Carron Iron Works and the later (1908) Bainsford Branch (North British Railway). The signal box was in the 'V' of the junction.

To the south was a siding to the Forth and Clyde Canal and to the south west was the curve to Swing Bridge Junction and the Sunnyside Iron Works was to the west.

The siding to the canal and line to the north were the originally the tramway of the Carron Iron Company.

The box and line closed in 1968
