Opened on the Ayr and Maybole Railway.


Description

This is a closed station south west of Dalrymple Junction and north west of Dalrymple itself. The station was originally a single platform on the single track line to Maybole, the platform being on the north/west side of the line. The line was later doubled and a second platform added. The main station building remained on the original platform, later the northbound platform.

There was a goods yard north of the station on the west side, approached from the north. The signal box closed in 1954, with the passenger station, replaced with a ground frame.

The line was singled in 1973. The building remains in use as a house.
