St Fillans (1901-1951)
Opened on the Lochearnhead, St Fillans and Comrie Railway.
This was a two platform station. The main station building was on the westbound platform, there was a waiting shelter on the eastbound platform and a signal box ('B' listed). The buildings were of Caledonian Railway style. There was a goods loop to the north and a goods yard, approached from the west.
The station, box and line closed in 1951.
Much use of concrete was made in building this line, and this can be seen at the former station and nearby bridges.
The buildings remain standing, one of the most complete examples of a station in Scotland. It is a remarkable survivor.
The site is now a static caravan park. There has been some infilling between the platforms and a house built at the east end.
