Old Photograph Railway Station Loudon Hill Scotland


Old photograph of the railway station below Loudon Hill near Darvel which is located ten miles East of Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland. The railway line ran from Darvel to Loundonhill to Strathaven. The line was single track with loops at stations, the stations had island platforms. The Darvel to Loudonhill section was owned by the Glasgow and South Western Railway and the Loudonhill to Strathaven section owned by the Caledonian Railway. The line had been intended as a through route between Lanarkshire and Ayrshire, however there was very little traffic along the route as the population in the area was very low. The station was closed from September until November 1909 and then again from January 1917 until December 1922.
