Name and dates

Castlecary Fireclay Works (1904-1981)

Served by the Caledonian Railway.


This was the works of John G Stein and Co. Ltd. It was served by a siding from the Caledonian Railway which was on the south side of the line. The location was just north of where the Caledonian Railway passed under the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway on the approach to Greenhill Lower from the south.

It opened around 1904 with a signal box, 'Castlecary', opening at the junction.

The box closed in 1975 and the works closed in 1981.

To the south was the abortive Castlecary Curve.
