Description

This junction was installed in the Second World War. It was a double track junction as a long loop was put in on the West Highland Railway and the connection to the Faslane Branch yard was double track. Faslane Junction Yard was just to the north on the branch.

The signal box was on the west side of the line with a footbridge to it immediate south and the road access to Stuckenduff Farm passing below just to the north. The box opened in 1941.

The box was closed in 1953 when it was replaced with a ground frame. The branch connection survived until around 1980 and track was still in place in 1987.

Faslane Platform was a halt just east of the junction.
