Description

This is a suburban two platform station.

Sighthill Junction is to the north and Barnhill Tunnel is to the south.

At Sighthill Junction there was a connection between the Sighthill Branch (Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway) and the City of Glasgow Union Railway (on which the station stood) and a curve east to Sighthill East Junction.This latter is the connection now used for trains from Glasgow Queen Street High Level to Cumbernauld and has effectively allowed Queen Street to replace Glasgow Buchanan Street. This curve crosses Barnhill Tunnel.
