Name and dates

Kippen (1856-1934)

Opened on the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station.

The station was to the west of a level crossing and the station building, goods shed, loading bank and, notably, the signal box (last of its type and 'C' listed) still stand. The station building stands on what was the westbound platform, the signal box is by the level crossing.

The station building had a single storey waiting room, facing the platform, and a two storey main block.

The goods yard was on the south side of the line, approached from the west.

The platforms are no longer obvious, the trackbed having been raised.

The station was quite far outside Kippen itself.
