Name and dates

Kittybrewster Yard (1854-1961)

Opened on the Great North of Scotland Railway.


Description

This yard was located to the east of Kittybrewster [2nd] station. It was served from the north. A loop came off the main line to the south of the station and rejoined at Kittybrewster Junction north of the station. This crossed the Aberdeen Waterloo line to the south of the station.

The yard consisted of six looped sidings and around sixteen dead end sidings, approached from the north.

The yard handled a wide variety of traffic. Traffic was shuttled Craiginches Yard to exchange with the Caledonian Railway. In its latter days it was a coal depot and also handled LPG.

It has now been cleared and various shopping outlets opened on its site.
