NS89SE 172.01 88693 93109

Not to be confused with Alloa South Station (Caledonian Rly), situated S of the river at NS 87870 91880, for which see NS89SE 222.

This intermediate station on the Stirling-Dunfermline secondary line of the former North British Rly was also the junction station for that company's line to Dollar and Kinross. The station was opened (by the Stirling and Dunfermline Rly) on 28 August 1850, renamed Alloa North Station (by the North British Rly) in December 1875, reverting to Alloa Station in January 1882. It closed to regular passenger traffic (with the line as a whole) on 7 October 1968, but reopening is projected.
