West Ferry (1859-1967)
Opened on the Dundee and Arbroath Railway.
This was a two platform station to the west of Broughty Ferry. The main building, of two storeys, was at the west end of the westbound platform and there was a waiting shelter on the eastbound platform.
There was a signal box at the east end of the eastbound platform. The box closed in 1917 but briefly reopened in 1925.
The station closed to passengers in 1967.
The main building remains, in use as a house. The canopy it once featured is gone but the doorways which led to the platform are still there, blocked off and unused. Both platforms are reduced to mounds. The original entry and stone steps down to the westbound platform remain. There was no goods yard.
Across Douglas Terrace from the former station is the unusually extended house used in the BBC television sitcom 'Bob Servant Independent'.
