Former Gilnockie Railway Station

Former Gilnockie Railway Station


Canonbie, United Kingdom (GB)
Gilnockie station opened in 1864 and closed 1967. Gilnockie was one of the stations along the Langholm branch in England.

The station house is now a private house. The platform is extant, but grassed and with a hedge planted along the edge of the platform for privacy, because the track bed is being used as a farm track. The toilet block's base is still extant at the end of the platform and is now used as a seating area in the garden. The goods yard is now part of the garden, but the brick plinth that supported the crane has been preserved as a garden feature. The cattle dock is now in the garden beyond the passenger platform. A replica of the original station sign now hangs at the entrance to the house.
