Name and dates

Kinfauns (1847-1950)

Opened on the Dundee and Perth Railway.


This was a two platform station. There was a single storey station building.

The station had a goods yard at the east end, north side of the line. The signal box was at the east end of the eastbound platform.

When opened there was little development in this area, it was opened for Kinfauns Castle and its estate. A payment of £12,000 had been required by Lord Gray to allow the line to pass through his estate.

The box closed in 1946, replaced with a ground frame and the station closed in 1950.

The railway is open but little remains of the station.
