Old Photographs Railway Station Forfar Scotland

Old photograph of the railway station in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. The Arbroath and Forfar Railway was a railway that connected Forfar with the port town of Arbroath. It opened in 1838 and it was successful in making an operating profit, but it was always desperately short of capital. When the Aberdeen Railway was authorised in 1845, it leased the Arbroath and Forfar line to form part of its main line connecting Forfar and Aberdeen; it opened in 1848. Almost all of the Arbroath and Forfar Railway was closed in 1967.
