Stirling Shed [NB]

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

Opened on the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway.


This was the shed of the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway, built in the 'V' of the junction between that line and the Scottish Central Railway. It was considered part of Shore Road Shed [NB], although geographically remote from it being across the SCR from the Stirling and Dunfermline Railway shed.

This was a four road shed, approached from the south (from Stirling station or Cowpark Goods). A turntable was on the west side (42ft) and second building (coaling shed?) to the east.

It was given over to wagon repairs until 1929 when the Sentinel steam railcars were based here.

Today it is the site of a Scottish Ambulance depot.
