Name and dates

Don Street (1887-1937)

Opened on the Great North of Scotland Railway.

Description

This was a two platform suburban station in Aberdeen. The station was between Kittybrewster [2nd] and Woodside [GNSR]. The eastbound/southbound platform had a small building, later joined by a small building on the facing platform. There were no goods facilities.

The station opened in 1887, long after the line was doubled in 1861 between Kittybrewster Junction and Dyce.

The station closed in 1937 with the withdrawal of local trains.

The line was singled between Aberdeen and Dyce in 1971.

Don Street crosses the line to the west of the former station. Nothing remains of the platforms.

The line has been redoubled (2019).
