Name and dates

Blackbyres Junction [G and SW] (1902-1910)

Opened on the Barrhead Branch (Glasgow and South Western Railway).

Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.


Description

This was a double track junction. A line from Barrhead Central met a line from Barrhead North Junction here and ran on to Thornly Park Junction and Potterhill. It was immediately east of Blackbyres Junction [CR] on the neighbouring Caledonian line. Unlike that line, it carried passengers for a few years.

After 1910 the location ceased to be a junction with closure of the curve to Barrhead North Junction and the remaining line was singled.
