Name and dates

Cobbinshaw [1st] (1874-1875)

Opened on the Caledonian Railway.

Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.


Description

This station was opened on the west bank of the Cobbinshaw Reservoir (a feeder for the Union Canal).

The station was by Cobbinshaw Siding, or Cobbinshaw Mineral Depot, several sidings alongside an pumphouse with an engine. The engine was on the east side of the line alongside the reservoir. The sidings probably provided the engine with coal.

The signal box here was replaced in 1914 and closed in 1966.

A permanent station was opened at Cobbinshaw [2nd].
