Name and dates

Millisle Exchange Platform (1877-1903)

Opened on the Wigtownshire Railway.


This island platform sat between the Garlieston branch and the Newton Stewart to Whithorn 'mainline'.

Until 1907 access to the branch required reversal. A train from Newton Stewart would enter Millisle station and then set back into the Garlieston face of the Millisle Exchange Platform before continuing to Garlieston. In 1907 the layout was altered to allow trains direct access to the Garlieston branch and the exchange platform and reversing spur removed. Passenger services had ceased in 1903.
