Name and dates

Lochmaben (1863-1952)

Opened on the Dumfries, Lochmaben and Lockerbie Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station, crossed by a road bridge, diverted from its original course and subsequently routed back to its original course.

Small station buildings were on the short sections of platform to the west of the overbridge.

The original station had no loop and only the westbound platform - the road bridge was probably built around the time the passing loop was installed.

The goods yard, on the south side of the line, was approached by reversal from the westbound line.

There were two signal boxes. These were replaced by one to the west end. in 1887, probably when the loop opened.
