Conon Bridge Station

 
The original Conon Bridge Station opened on 11 June 1862 and closed almost 100 years later, on 13 June 1960.
 
Through Network Rail and the Scottish Government the required finance was provided, estimated to be £600,000, and construction began in November 2012.  Provision included a single platform around 15 metres in length, a waiting shelter, passenger information systems, cycle racks and lockers, and a new car park, plus wider road access and improved street lighting. 

The new station was opened by Keith Brown, Scottish Government Transport Minister, on 8 February 2013, on schedule and on budget.

A link with the original station is provided through the excellent model created by Conon Bridge resident, Tony Innes.
