Inveramsay and Macduff Railway :: Shared Description

The railway line to Macduff was originally built by the Banff, Macduff and Turriff Railway Company, which was taken into the Great North of Scotland Railway (GNSR) which called it the Macduff Section. In 1923 it became part of the London and North Eastern (LNER) network, and was called the Inveramsay and Macduff Branch. After nationalisation in 1947 it was part of British Railways, but it was uneconomic to operate, with just three trains a day each way. It closed to passenger traffic in 1951 and finally to freight in 1966.

The line ran for 29 miles through open undulating farmland, and reached the outskirts of Macduff, at Gellymill, in 1860. It was extended into Macduff in 1872, but no link was ever built across the River Deveron to connect the Macduff branch with the branch that terminated in Banff.
