Station


Name and dates

Broomhouse (1878-1927)

Opened on the Glasgow, Bothwell, Hamilton and Coatbridge Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station of which very little remains.

To the north was the Daldowie Colliery Pit No 1 (north side of line) and to the south the Broomhouse Pit Colliery No 1 (south side of line). Crossovers in the station would have facilitated running round if required.

A signal box at the south end of the station controlled access to the collieries.

Closed to goods 1 Sept 1953.
