Blackhill Junction (1886-1962)
Opened on the Blochairn Steel Works Branch (Caledonian Railway).
Opened on the The Switchback (Caledonian Railway).
At this junction the 1884 Blochairn Steel Works Branch (Caledonian Railway) from [[Germiston Junction High] on the Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway] (1831) was met in 1886 by a curve of the The Switchback (Caledonian Railway) to Germiston Junction Low on the 1849 Buchanan Street Extension (Caledonian Railway).
The signal box, opened with the junction, was on the east side of the junction. A siding to the Provanmill Distillery branched off to the north east, passing round the east side of the box.
The Provanmill Gas Works opened on the west side. Looped sidings were laid on the west side which had a connection south of the junction and this loop ran south to rejoin at Blochairn Junction. Sidings ran into the gas works from the loops.
The Germiston Low link closed in 1962, whereupon this ceased to be a junction and the box closed. The remaining line closed in 1966.
The site was obliterated by the construction and course of the M80.
