The original Crathes station was built by the Deeside Railway.  The platforms are still in place, but the Signal Box constructed on the Northern platform is a replica, constructed as a summer house by the adjacent house owner, in an extension to his garden. Mention must be made of the House of Lords ruling which was necessary to arbitrate a dispute between the Laird of Crathes and the Deeside Railway over whether their agreement for any trains to stop at his private platform when hailed by him, also applied to the Queen’s Messenger (tbc)
