Station


Name and dates

Thorneyburn (1861-1956)

Opened on the Border Counties Railway.


Description

This station was a single platform line on the south side of the line, with a wooden building. To the west, over a level crossing, was a railway cottage on the north side of the line.

The crossing was protected by signals, but there was no box here.

The surrounding area is Thorneyburn, with the Low and High farms to the west and the River North Tyne's Hadyad Ford just to the south.

The station closed in 1956 and line in 1958.

The level crossing gates remain here, as does the mound and portions of the platform. A platelayer's hut is on the north side of the former station.
