A recently placed plaque on platform 7 tells of the past importance of Perth as a railway hub and how it came to be designed in 1848. Major alterations then took place in 1885-7 and 1911.

We are unsure who commissioned or produced this plaque. If you know please let us know in the comments box below.

Perth and Kinross Archive published a Facebook post on 7th Dec 2023 with photos revealing just how impressive the original Tudoresque main building looked, and how it was partially obscured by the later 1880s additions. As the metal roof of this later part is now decaying, it is to be hoped that one day we shall be able to see the main building as it once was. This is just the kind of issue that Perth Civic Trust is interested in.
