Kirriemuir Junction (1855-1864)
Opened on the Scottish Midland Junction Railway.
This was a station, exchange platform and junction. A very low platform stood in the 'V' of the junction with a building, probably a railway employee's house. The platform had one face on the main line and another on the branch.
There was a siding to the south, approached from west of the junction. A tall signal box stood to the south at the junction, allowing a view over the farm access bridge which crossed just east of the junction.
There was a loop on the branch as originally laid out. Later this was a double track junction, the branch to Kirriemuir rapidly becoming a single track just beyond the junction.
There was no public access, accept by train.
The formation remains today, now slightly infilled.
