Name and dates

Monikie (1872-1955)

Opened on the Dundee and Forfar Direct Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station on the south side of the line.

From the east end of the station was access to a pair of sidings serving a loading bank on the north side of the station. To the south was access to Affleck Seed Crushing Works (later Farina Mills). These sidings were accessed from the east.

A siding was later added east of the station, accessed from the station.

Monikie was very small when the railway arrived. It is now quite sizeable.

Little remains of the station. The site has been largely infilled although part of the platform remains. It is currently vacant. A lattice road bridge is to the west of the site.

Local

Canmore - Affleck Castle is to the north west.
