HistoryEdit

The station opened as Clackmannan on 28 August 1850 by the North British Railway. The goods yard was to the northeast. The station's name was changed to Clackmannan Road in 1893 to avoid confusion with Clackmannan and Kennet, which opened around the same time. The station closed on 1 January 1917 but reopened on 1 April 1919, only to close again on 1 December 1921.[1][2]
