Name and dates

Gartness Junction (1882-1950)

Opened on the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway.

Opened on the Strathendrick and Aberfoyle Railway.


Description

Here the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway was met by the Strathendrick and Aberfoyle Railway which used its metals to reach Buchlyvie Junction where it branched off for Aberfoyle.

Both lines were single track but there was a loop on the Dumgoyne route here. The signal box was in the 'V' of the junction.

The junction closed in 1950 with the line west to Gartness and the box closing.

The formation still exists, reverting to nature.
