Name and dates

Kinaldie (1854-1964)

Opened on the Great North of Scotland Railway.

Description

This was a two platform station. The main station building, with crow-stepped gables, was on the Aberdeen bound platform. This was the original platform when the line was single track.

The line was doubled between Dyce and Kintore [1st] in 1880.

There was a single siding goods yard to the east of the station. The tall signal box was also to the east, south side of the line, tall enough to see over the neighbouring road bridge. The box closed in 1960.

The station closed to passengers in 1964.

The railway was singled between Dyce and Inverurie in 1969.

The platforms remain today, out of use.

The line has been redoubled (2019).
