Scope and Content Kintore Station, Aberdeenshire This shows the west-bound platform from the south-east, as seen from an Aberdeen-Inverness diesel multiple-unit train. The stone building is the original station of 1854, and the timber shelter was probably added in the 1880s or 1890s. Note the van body, of a very early design, used as a store. Kintore Station closed in the 1960s, when the railways in north-east Scotland were severely pruned during the Beeching cuts. The buildings seen here have since been demolished. This station was opened in 1854 by the Great North of Scotland Railway as part of its line from Aberdeen to Huntly. This section of the line was built on the bed of the Aberdeenshire Canal. Kintore was one of three passing places on the original single-track route. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
