Name and dates

Ladybank Shed (1847-1958)

Opened on the Edinburgh and Northern Railway.


Aligned with the Perth route were two buildings, Ladybank Works and locomotive shed, both on the east side of the line. The works building still stands and is an excellent early survivor.

To the south of Ladybank Works, closer to the junction, was the two road shed and coaling shed.

The shed became a sub shed of Thornton Shed [2nd]. The shed closed in 1958 and was demolished around 1971. The turntable was to the south.

Both works and shed were approached from the south.
