Anderston Cross (1896-1959)
Opened on the Glasgow Central Railway.
Open on the Argyle Line.
This is an island platform station. There is a ticket office at street level, below the Kingston Bridge, a motorway bridge.
The platform was exposed on its north (eastbound) side and platform area covered with a glazed canopy. There was no goods yard. The site was immediately west of Anderston Cross. The original street level building, with a main block of two storeys, was by [[John James Burnett] but was demolished in 1967 around the time the Anderston area was being re-developed and preparations for the Kingston Bridge were in progress.
The signal box here closed in 1956, taken over by a new power box using coloured lighting. The line closed to passengers in 1959 and completely in 1965. It re-opened as part of the Argyle Line in 1979.
The re-opened station building is in the shadow of the Kingston Bridge on a traffic island in the midst of a busy road junction. At track level the west end of the eastbound platform is open air.
