From 1848 Dundee and Perth Railway leased the Dundee and Arbroath Railway and then changed their name to the Dundee and Perth and Aberdeen Railway Junction.

The cumbersome title was explained by the fact that the Dundee and Arbroath line had powers to connect to the Arbroath and Forfar line which was being taken over by the Aberdeen Railway: the lease would connect Perth and Dundee with the Aberdeen Railway.[1]

In 1881 the company was absorbed by the Caledonian Railway

Note: The archives of the Dundee and Perth and Aberdeen Railway Junction Company, which include those of the Dundee and Perth Railway Company are held at the University of Dundee as part of the Shiell and Small, Solicitors Collection.[2]
