(Location cited as NN 901 093). Blackford Station, opened 1848 by the Scottish Central Rly. Formerly a two-platform through station. The platform edges have been cut back but the main block, a 1-storey and attic dormer-windowed building with mullioned windows in the platform frontage, survives, as do the wooden wooden goods shed and the wood and brick signal box, of late Caledonian Rly pattern.
