Grangemouth Junction (1860-)
Opened on the Grangemouth Railway (Forth and Clyde Canal).
Opened on the Stirlingshire Midland Junction Railway.
Also known as Grangemouth Branch Junction.
Here the former Grangemouth Railway (Forth and Clyde Canal) meets the 1850 former Stirlingshire Midland Junction Railway. Approach is from the west.
Until 1997 this was a double track junction, it is now a single lead junction. The box was closed, replaced by a portacabin (on the north side of the line), in a resignalling which also closed Swing Bridge East Signal Box. The portacabin box closed in December 2017. Local trains from the west which terminate at Falkirk Grahamston can use the first part of the branch as a refuge before reversing.
When first built the branch was single track, doubling before the junction.
