Name and dates

Kinbuck (1848-1956)

Opened on the Scottish Central Railway.

Description

This was a two platform station north of Dunblane. The main station building was on the northbound platform. A similar example exists at Blackford.

There was a goods yard to the north of the station on the west side, approached from the north. On the east side was a siding serving a sand pit. The station's signal box, replaced 1916, was on the east side, north of the southbound platform.

Kinbuck closed to passengers in 1956. The signal box remained open until 1966.

The station building is now a house. Nothing remains of the platforms. The same pit is currently (2018) a landfill site.
