Description

This was the junction between the Deeside Railway and the Aberdeen Railway. The junction was just north of Ferryhill Shed [1st] and the Dee Viaduct and south of Ferryhill (Aberdeen) (which survived until 1854 to be replaced by Aberdeen Guild Street), later replaced by Aberdeen Joint. The junction gave access to the branch from Aberdeen Joint.

The Deeside Railway was doubled after opening.

After reduction to a single track, the westbound line was lifted, the line remained double track between the junction and a short distance to the west.

Ferryhill Shed was within the 'V' of the junction.
