HistoryEdit

The station opened on 26 March 1858 by the Scottish Central Railway. To the north east was the goods yard which had two goods sheds: one next to the station and the other was to the east of the yard. The signal box was to the southeast and opened in 1893. The line to the west served as a goods and mineral line, serving Herbertshire Colliery Pit, Stoneywood Goods and Carrongrove Paper Mill. Another line ran to the east of the station serving SSEB Bonnywater Electricity Siding. The station closed on 28 July 1930[1] but carried on serving the lines to the east and west. The signal box closed in 1934. The lines to the east and west closed in 1971.[2]
