Newton Ballast Hill

Opened on the Tay Bridge and Associated Lines (North British Railway).


This sand and gravel quarry was rail served. There was a signal box on the south side of the line with a siding, approached from the west, behind it. To the north was a longer siding running into the quarry. This was approached from the south east.

The signal box opened with the line to the Tay Bridge [1st]. It was later replaced with a ground frame.
