During the railway network's heyday in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Dumfries and Galloway was served by dozens of stations, many of them on the 'Paddy Line' from Dumfries to Portpatrick and its several branches. Only a handful of stations now serve this rural area. 51 pictures and a map record many lost stations, along with other features such as the Solway Viaduct, the level crossing at Gretna Township, the engine shed at Beattock and sidings and sheds at Newton Stewart. Station staff, passengers and rolling stock feature prominently too.
