This is a plan of Wick railway station. It is undated although it was drawn up after the nationalisation of Britain's railways in 1948. Wick is the end of the line.

The Sutherland and Caithness Railway opened from Helmsdale to Wick and Thurso on 28 July 1874 and connected the far north of Scotland with Inverness and the south. In 1903 a light railway was opened to Lybster but this closed in 1944. The junction for the Wick and Lybster Light Railway was immediately south of the station with the branch diverging to the south.
