HistoryEdit

The station was the meeting point of the two pioneer railways, the Slamannan Railway and the Ballochney Railway, and joined the Monklands Railway when they amalgamated to form it in 1848. The Monklands railway was in 1865 absorbed by the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway, joining the North British Railway a day later. By the time of these events however the station had closed, in 1862.
