Name and dates

Hatton Engine House (1831-1865)

Opened on the Dundee and Newtyle Railway.


Description

This engine house was at the top of the Hatton Incline, south east of Newtyle [1st].

There was a very short loop a the incline head, and a pair of sidings, served from the south east. The line passed under the engine house.

After replacement of the incline with the deviation via Newtyle [2nd], the engine house was demolished. A railway cottage, named Hillend Cottage, just to the north of the former running line, remained.

The cottage no longer stands.
