People of Troon could soon be able to have their say on the restoration plans of Troon Train Station.

The station was ravaged by fire in July, causing serious damage to the structure of the building, and affecting train services for a number of days.

Troon councillors previously warned railway bosses not to restore the local station in the same way they did Largs Train Station, which was partially demolished in a rail accident in 1995.

Labour councillor Philip Saxton previously said: “I would not be amused if something similar [to Largs] was built in Troon.

“As only half the station was demolished, it would be a bit odd if one was a 21st century design and the other was 1892.”

Three designs look set to be put forward and once finalised, townsfolk will have their say on which design they prefer.

Reassurances were made that the outside of the station will look as it was, with canopies restored to modern building standards. The inside of the station will have a more contemporary feel with modernised facilities.

Ayr MSP, Siobhian Brown said she is happy that the plans are being put forward how they are. She said: “I welcome the news, and I am sure the people of Troon do too, that the railway station will be restored sympathetically in a like-for-like-fashion.”

It is yet to be revealed when the plans will be shown.
