There is an extremely useful book entitled Royal Deeside's Railway (ISBN

0 902343 09 2) which includes track plans at Banchory, 1864 and 1925, although fairly small. Lots of pictures and other information, too.

I have recently watched a video tape called, I think, Scottish Byways, which included footage of the Royal Deeside line.

Which station? Banchory had three. The original was built in 1853 and was quite a simple station with, i think, a wooden building. It was repliaced in the early 1900s with a new station constructed a short distance west, the new station being more substantially constructed in stone/granite. There was also Banchory (Dee Street) halt, a very short (less than 1/3 coach length) wooden platform built

1/2 mile west of the main station in 1961(?).

- it was the GNSR who rebuilt Banchory station in the 1900s so there may be surviving track plans?

Indeed. Railways of Scotland Vol. 4 "Aberdeen & The Grampians" also has footage of the line, including the demolition of the line in the
