Name and dates

Burnside (1904-)

Opened on the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway.

Open on the Newton Line.


Description

This is an island platform station. The line is raised and the entry is by subway, with a rather fine archway entrance to the subway at street level. This was covered over with an oversize Burnside sign for many years, but has now been uncovered again. The original station building has not survived. At the east end of the station two bridges cross Burnside Road, the southern of which carried two tracks.

There were two tracks on the south side of the station, the southern of which was for the goods station which was to the east of the station on the south side.
