Station


Name and dates

Alves (1858-1965)

Opened on the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station to the east of Alves Junction. The main station building, now a house, was on the eastbound platform. The east of the station is crossed by a road bridge.

When the branch to Burghhead [1st] first opened it ran parallel to the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway to the station before making the connection at the station, which had a single platform.

This was later altered so that the junction was just west of the station which had a passing loop.

Today the junction makes connection where the lines meet. The branch is currently out of use.

There was a goods yard at the west end of the station, north of the line. It was reached by reversal from the station.

The platforms remain with the station building on the eastbound platform.
