Dalcross (Scottish Gaelic: Steisean Dealgros) was a railway station located at Dalcross, to the east of Inverness, Scotland (now in the Highland Council Area).
Dalcross station closed on 3 May 1965. The station building, one platform and some other structures were still in existence as of March 2006[update]. The level crossing at the eastern end of the station is now equipped with automatic half-barriers, and is 137 miles 17 chains (220.8 km) from Perth (measured via Dava).
Station to serve Inverness Airport
In June 2006 it was announced that there is a proposal to open a new station at Dalcross, which would serve Inverness Airport and also provide park-and-ride facilities, relieving road congestion to the east of Inverness, and so helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The proposal was still open in 2010, and it was specified that the station could have one platform on the north side of the line, 150 metres (490 ft) long, sufficient for a six-car Class 170 train. The proposed location of the station was given as having an eastern end at an overbridge 136 miles 38 chains (219.6 km) (grid reference NH770511), extending westward to 136 miles 46 chains (219.8 km). There is also the possibility of providing a passing loop, which could not extend further west than the level crossing; a second platform would be built on the south side of the loop. In February 2011, Keith Brown, the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure in the Scottish Parliament, stated that discussions on the proposed station (and another at Kintore) were being held between Transport Scotland and Network Rail.
In March 2009, it was stated that the new station could be opened during 2016.
