Having the Railway manned 1845/46 a
line was projected to connect Ayr & Galloway by
Dalmellington. Only a few miles were formed
between Sillyhole & Smithstone. This portion forms
part of the Ayr and Dalmellington Rauilway,
the Ayr and Galloway Railway project having
been abandoned. The capital of the Ayr and
Galloway has never been all called up and
the value per share is about one half of the
amount paid up.
