This is the junction between the line from Glasgow Central to Kilmarnock and the branch to East Kilbride.
It was originally the junction between the Glasgow, Barrhead and Neilston Direct Railway (1848) (extended to Kilmarnock in 1871) and the Busby Railway (1866) which (extended to East Kilbride in 1868 and Hamilton in 1883).
Formerly a double track junction, with some short sidings, it is now a single lead junction for the East Kilbride line. The signal box here, the second on this site, closed in 1974 when replaced by Glasgow Central Power Box.
