Jack Kernahan, in 'The Cathcart Circle' describes what's seen here thus

'The passengers on the trains were likely on this section to miss one of the principal features of the new line, namely the two four-apartment houses, provided for the station masters, which were built in the five arches of the viaduct carrying the line between the girder bridges at Rossendale and Pollokshaws Roads, the only evidence of the houses to the passengers being the chimneys growing from the parapets.'

The entrances are seen here in March 2011. These are on the east side of the line - Rossendale Road is off to the left and Pollokshaws road is immediately behind the camera. Both houses were in use as offices until recently.
