Name and dates

Ponfeigh (1864-1964)

Opened on the Douglas Branch (Caledonian Railway).


Description

This was a single platform station was a passing loop. The Douglas Colliery branch came off to the east of the station. On the platform was a timber small building in Caledonian style.

The site has recently been cleared (~2016).

A note on the name. The station was called Ponfeigh because when built it served a village of that name some way to the south east. Douglas Water was developed later after the Douglas Colliery was built, which explains why the station has the 'wrong name'.
