Ffarquhar Road is a small village and a station on the Arlesdale Railway and was also one on the Mid Sodor Railway. In the heyday of the latter, the station had a platform and a shelter made from granite sourced from the quarry at Marthwaite. A nearby lead mine, which now provides weed-killing ballast, is connected via a branch line from the station loop. It is named after the road that links Ffarquhar to Arlesburgh.

When the Arlesdale Railway was built upon the disused trackbed of the Mid Sodor twenty years later, the station was updated to have two platforms instead of one. The shelter was also replaced with an enclosed station building.

A watermill is located nearby.

Trivia

  • Its Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway equivalent is Muncaster Mill Station.
  • Although it is most likely a coincidence, there is a real place named "Farquhar Road" in the London Borough of Southwark.
