Name and dates

Clocksbriggs (1848-1955)

Opened on the Arbroath and Forfar Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station on the Strathmore main line with the main station building on the northbound platform and a level crossing at the west end.

The station building is now in use as a house. Recent alterations have changed the appearance making the original layout less obvious; the northern portion of the building is the original.

Later an oil depot to the west of the level crossing and north of the line was served by by reversing from the east (Clocksbriggs Oil Sidings).
