Description

This was a coal burning power station which was railway served.

Coal from Dollar Mine was brought to the power station, the trains running round in Alloa Marshalling Yard.

The power station saw little use in the late 1980s and 1990s except a brief use of coal imported via Rothesay Dock in Clydebank. It was demolished in 2001.

There was a large yard here, approached from the east.
