Station


Name and dates

Port Carlisle Junction (1863-1864)

Opened on the Carlisle and Port Carlisle Railway and Dock.


Description

A very short lived station existed at Port Carlisle Junction from 1863 to 1864, possibly even from 1862 when the Waverley Route opened.

The station was located at Canal Junction where the Waverley Route from Hawick [2nd] met the existing line from Silloth and Port Carlisle.

Photographic evidence shows that a platform existed on the Waverley Route between Canal Junction and the turn out to Canal Shed in 1908. The platform first appears on Ordnance Survey maps in 1925. Whether this is the original station is difficult to say. This platform, on the northbound line only, was used in connection with the shed. Opposite the platform by the southbound line, were sidings, served from Canal Junction. The platform was a short distance from Canal Junction signal box, just to the south.

The platform still exists, very overgrown.
