Auchincruive railway station was a railway station serving the settlement of St Quivox and the estate of Auchincruive, South Ayrshire, Scotland. The station was originally part of the Ayr to Mauchline Branch of the Glasgow and South Western Railway.

History

The station opened on 1 September 1870,[1] and closed to regular passenger services on 10 September 1951.[1]

Opened by the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway, then joining the Caledonian Railway it became part of the London Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. Passing on to the Scottish Region of British Railways during the nationalisation of 1948, it was then closed by the British Railways Board.
