Name and dates

Loch Park Siding (1921-1969)

Opened on the Border Union Railway (North British Railway).


Workshops opened at Loch Park in 1921 to replace the workshops at Riccarton Junction. The works closed in the mid 1960s, before the line closed in 1969.

The workshops were on the east side of the line north of the Wellogate Brae bridge. Approach was from the north. Two main sheds were located on either side of the sidings in the middle of the site.

Almost all the works buildings survive in other uses.
