Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ardrossan Montgomerie Pier railway station was a railway station serving the town of Ardrossan, North Ayrshire, Scotland as part of the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway (L&AR). The station was opened to compete with the Glasgow and South Western Railway owned station at Winton Pier on the opposite side of the harbour. The station opened on 30 May 1890 as Ardrossan Pier, replacing the L&AR Ardrossan station as the new terminus for the line in Ardrossan. It was closed from 1 January 1917 to 1 February 1919 due to wartime economy, and upon the grouping of the L&AR into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) in 1923, the station was renamed Ardrossan Montgomerie Pier on 2 June 1924. The name change was to avoid confusion with the nearby G&SWR station of the same name, which was also incorporated into the LMS. Montgomerie Pier survived the former L&AR station closures of 1932.show more
