Dinwoodie (1853-1960)

Opened on the Caledonian Railway.


This was a two platform station to the south of a level crossing. There was a goods yard on the west side of the line to the north of the crossing, reached by reversal from the northbound line.

Dinwoodie box was on the north side of the crossing, east side of the line.

The level crossing was stopped up for electrification, replaced by a road bridge to the south. The box closed in 1972. Railway cottages remain on the east side, north of the crossing.

Dinwoodie Mains was just to the west of the former station.
