Nook Pasture railway station is a railway station that served the village of Canonbie, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, from 1864 to 1873 on the Waverley Line.

History[edit]

The station opened on 2 January 1864 by the Border Union Railway. A public footpath that ran west from Nook Farm crossed the track. The station had no buildings or goods facilities. The station was presumed to have opened for John Forster, who had a large shareholding in the Border Union Railway.[1] The station closed in 1873 to both passengers and completely, when he was presumed to have ceased to be a shareholder.[2]
