Scope and Content Stirling Station, Stirling The first station on this site was opened in 1848 by the Scottish Central Railway. It was enlarged and altered on several occasions before being completely reconstructed in 1912 by the Caledonian Railway, to designs by James Miller, architect. This shows the street frontage of the station from the south-west. The Scots Vernacular style is a conscious echo of the design of the original building, but it conceals a light, airy concourse with radial steel lattice ribs, similar to that at Wemyss Bay Station, which was designed by the same architect. The large awning over the entrance (porte-cochère) has been cut back since 1968, and the forecourt remodelled as a car park and taxi rank. The station was refurbished c.1998 by Railtrack.
