Station


Name and dates

Castlecary (1842-1967)

Opened on the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station at the west end of the Castlecary Viaduct. To the north of the station was the Castlecary Fireclay and Lime Works which was rail served from the east (and had a tramway to the Forth and Clyde Canal).

There was a goods yard at the east end of the station to the south of the line accessed by reversal from the west.

Nothing remains of the station which closed in 1967, the box (east end of the station, south side) closing in 1966.

The M80 passes under the viaduct to the east of the former station.

The area has much of interest from the Roman occupation. Castlecary Roman Bridge is just to the east of the former station. Castlecary Roman Fort is east of the viaduct and the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway runs through the site.

An accident occurred here in 1937 and second accident in 1968.
