Plans are back on track to bring an important piece of Tayside railway history back into use as family homes. B-listed sheds at the end of what was the Dundee to Newtyle line are now at the centre of proposals to build six homes in what developers say will be a new micro community in the Angus village.

Newtyle [1st]: The north end of the original Newtyle station showing the platform and building added to the right after conversion for goods. The building's gable end was also modified and offices on the east side demolished. View looks south.
Newtyle [1st]: More than 100 years after closure, Newtyle (Old) station building survives in agricultural use in October 1974. The original Dundee-Newtyle route included three inclined planes which required stationary steam engines to haul the trains uphill. These steep sections were bypassed by three new deviation routes, including the section which led to the closure of Newtyle (Old) and the associated Hatton Incline in 1868.
