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 a Girvan to Glasgow train entering the Glasgow and Ayr-bound platform, with the awning of the building on that side on the right, and part of the main building on the south-bound platform on the left. The train is a Swindon-built diesel multiple-unit specially constructed for services on this line. 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.
