Name and dates

Dunlop (1871-)

Opened on the Glasgow and Kilmarnock Joint Railway.

Open on the G and SW Main Line.


Description

This is a two platform station.

The main station building had been on the northbound platform with a smaller one on the southbound. There was a goods yard, accessed from the south, with a stone goods shed on the east side of the line.

In 1973 the line was singled, the southbound track being renewed before the northbound was lifted entirely.

The goods shed survived in other uses until the whole goods yard was redeveloped for housing.

The line has been redoubled and northbound platform reinstated. It is one of two station on a long loop from Stewarton to Lugton.
