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 south, with the main building, on the south-bound platform, on the right. The two-storeyed part contains the agent's house. The south-bound platform building, on the left, is characteristic of the Glasgow & South Western Railway's mature style. 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.
