Name and dates

Craigenhill Summit (1848-)

Opened on the Caledonian Railway.

Description

Craigenhill box was by the summit. From here a mineral line ran north from a reversing spur off the southbound line to reach Craigenhill Lime Works (from which the line continued to a quarry to the east, one of several in the area).

The small signal box was just east of the siding with Craigenhill Cottage to its north. There was a level crossing to the east of the box.

The box closed in 1973 in preparation for electrification and the level crossing was taken out.
