Thrumster (1903-1944)

Opened on the Wick and Lybster Light Railway.


Description

This station stood alongside the A99. The station building backs onto the A road. The platform was on the east side of the line. There was a goods siding to the south, approached by a reversing spur parallel with the platform line.

The station building still stands in an excellent state of preservation, having been restored. The platform has been rebuilt and track has been relaid. The station was restored by the Yarrows Heritage Trust .

A station cottage is just to the north, still in use as a house.

Both buildings were typical of the line.

The building was part of a caravan park for some years after closure.
