Name and dates

Stanley [SMJR] (1848-1856)

Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.

Opened on the Scottish Midland Junction Railway.

Description

This station was half a mile south of Stanley Junction, which replaced it in 1856.

This first station was slightly more convenient for the village, the station was directly to its west, but was not located at the planned junction. The station was located further north east to a new site when the Perth and Dunkeld Railway opened.

A cutting between Perth Road and Mill Street is identified as the site, however the site just to the north of Craig House seems more likely.
