046 About the year 1846 a line of Railway was projected (& to be called the Ayr & Galloway Railway) connecting Ayrshire & Kirkcudbrightshire, by Dalmellington, of which a very small portion was formed, the scheme having been abandoned. A Bill was obtained (Session 1855-1856) for a Railway from Ayr to Dalmellington, a proviso of which is that the part of the previously contemplated Ayr & Galloway line which had been formed should merge in the Ayr & Dalmellington. It was opened in August 1856. Worked by the Glasgow & South Western Company.
