Scope and Content Maybole Station, Nos 18-20 Culzean Road, Maybole, South Ayrshire The railway reached Maybole in 1856, when the Ayr & Maybole Railway was opened, and Maybole became a through station when the Maybole & Girvan Railway was completed in 1860. The station was rebuilt in 1880 by the Glasgow & South Western Railway. This shows the station from the north-east showing the 1880 building on the south-bound platform. The booking office is in the single-storeyed section, and the two-storeyed part contains the agent's house. Part of the north-bound platform building can be seen to the right. When the Glasgow-Ayr line was electrified in the 1980s the route south to Girvan was singled, and service levels reduced. The north-bound platform here was abandoned, and the station demolished. The buildings on the south-bound platform still survived in 2002. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
