Description

This is a two platform station.

The original configuration of this station was somewhat unusual - two platforms on either side of the line to Rutherglen and an island platform on the line to Carmyle. On the south side of the island platform were carriage sidings and a goods yard, approached from the west. The island platform itself was partly belong London Road but with the south elevation open.

The station closed in 1964.

The two platforms on the Rutherglen route re-opened in 1979. The island platform remains in ruinous condition as the Carmyle route did not re-open. The site of the sidings is now occupied by housing.

To the north, over London Road, was the London Road Iron Works which did not have direct railway access.
