Larbert Junction

An important triangular railway junction located a mile (1.5 km) south of Larbert Station and 2 miles (3 km) west northwest of the centre of Falkirk. The first construction was in 1846-48, connecting the Scottish Central Railway and the Stirlingshire Midland Junction Railway, via Camelon and Falkirk Grahamston. The junction was doubled in size ten years later linking to the Denny Branch of the latter railway, which was of principal importance as a mineral line, and in the 1880s to the Kilsyth and Bonnybridge Railway. This western section of the junction closed in the 1960s and these lines were lifted.

Today it connects lines from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth. The sites of several Roman camps are recorded in the vicinity, including in the triangle of farmland enclosed by the three railway chords.
