Opened on the Cleland and Midcalder Line (Caledonian Railway).
Open on the Edinburgh to Glasgow via Shotts.
Breich is a two platform station on the former Caledonian Railway's Edinburgh and Glasgow line via Bellshill, Shotts and Kirknewton. The station formerly had a building, typical of the line, on the westbound platform. The station has relatively low platforms and an old footbridge. It is a very quiet station - often, in statistics, shown to have the fewest passengers in Scotland.
With electrification of the line in progress (2017), the future of the station is in doubt.
