Name and dates

Dipple Siding (1906-1955)

Opened on the Maidens and Dunure Light Railway (Glasgow and South Western Railway).


Description

These sidings were north of Dipple itself. The sidings were on the west side of the line and approached from the north. There was a short loop within the goods yard. The yard had an office and a water tank.

There was a signal box opened in 1914. This was with the addition of a new passing loop on the east side of the line to increase line capacity. The box was on the east side of the loop.

The box was replaced with a ground frame in 1925. It reopened in 1936 before being replaced again with a ground frame.

The line closed to goods and completely in 1955.

The site is now a caravan park, Turnberry Holiday Park.
