History[edit]

Opened by the Alva Railway, as part of the North British Railway it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923, passing on to the Scottish Region of British Railways during the nationalisation of 1948. It was then closed by the British Transport Commission.

The site today[edit]

The site, on the south side of the town, has not yet been developed.
