These were the exchange sidings between the Bairds and Dalmellington Limited system and the London, Midland and Scottish Railway at Dunaskin. The sidings were located adjacent to the Dunaskin Central Washery on the private system. The sidings were laid by the LMS.
The sidings are now lifted but their remains can be traced, although increasingly overgrown.
