Scope and Content Maybole Station, Nos 18-20 Culzean Road, Maybole, South Ayrshire This station was rebuilt in 1880 by the Glasgow & South Western Railway from an earlier station opened in 1860 by the Maybole & Girvan Railway. The new station was a two-platform through one, with the main building, incorporating the staff houses, on the south-bound platform. This shows the building on the Glasgow and Ayr-bound platform from the east. It contains waiting and staff rooms. The glazed awning is supported on ornamental cast iron brackets similar in style to those used in other station improvements made by the Glasgow & South Western Railway in the 1880s. When the Glasgow to Ayr line was electrified in the mid-1980s the line from Ayr to Girvan was singled, and traffic at Girvan was concentrated on the south-bound platform, this building on the north-bound platform, and the footbridge, being demolished.
