    1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway

    Age 22

    Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.

    Name Meaning


    habitational name from the county of Cornwall, which is named with the Old English tribal name Cornwealas. This is from Kernow (the term that the Cornish used to refer to themselves, a word of uncertain etymology, perhaps connected with a Celtic element meaning ‘horn, headland’), + Old English wealas ‘strangers, foreigners’, the term used by the Anglo-Saxons for British-speaking people.
