Description

This was a two platform station with the main building on the Glasgow bound platform. Although there was little housing in the area there were a number of coal mines.

To the west the Drumpellier Railway, a much older line, passed overhead and just west of that was a connection to Bartonshill Colliery No 1, previously served by a private line to Cuilhill Canal Basin.

To the east the line passed over the Monkland Canal and the Heatheryknowe Railway ran from Heatheryknowe Junction to a series of pits.

Nothing remains of this station.

There was a scrap yard here. Carriages were disposed of by burning and cutting up the remaining metal. Locomotives were also disposed of.
