Station


Name and dates

Lyne (1864-1950)

Opened on the Symington, Biggar and Broughton Extension Railway (Caledonian Railway).


Description

This was a single platform station built close to the confluence of the River Tweed and Lyne Water, crossed by the railway just east of the former station. Lyne farm is to the north west.

The through line was on an embankment carrying the line, platform (on the north side) and single storey station building just to the west of the particularly fine Lyne Viaduct. The goods yard was on the north side, approached from the west.

The station building (extended) survives in use as a house as does the viaduct.
