The Bangour Railway as it was known began with an east facing junction at Bangour Junction on the Edinburgh and Bathgate Railway. The junction hosted several sidings, and was located where the A899 Livingston Spine road crosses the railway today. A station, with a single platform and two sidings existed at Dechmont. The line terminated near the present day boiler house in Bangour Village Hospital. The line carried all the supplies for the hospital, but quickly became redundant when road access improved throughout the area. The line was funded by the Edinburgh and district Lunacy board, and was classed as a Private line.
