Scope and Content Kintore Station, Aberdeenshire This shows the goods shed from the north-west, as seen from an Aberdeen-Inverness diesel multiple-unit train. This timber building was probably added in the 1880s or 1890s, and is typical of Great North of Scotland Railway building of that period. Kintore Station closed in the 1960s, when the railways in north-east Scotland were severely pruned during the Beeching cuts. As can be seen, the goods sidings here had been lifted by 1971. The building seen here has 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.
