Description

Cathcart station has an island platform, original station building with glazed canopies, and is above road level. It is an intermediate station on the Cathcart Circle.

The station replaces a temporary terminus Cathcart 1st] which was to the east.

The station was on the Cathcart District Railway.

The former Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway approaches the station from Neilston and Newton, all four lines meet at Cathcart West Junction. A train from Neilston may call at the station, but due to the layout one from Newton may not, although it may join the Cathcart Circle. The junction layout was altered in the 1960s, see Cathcart West Junction for more details. The west end of the station was cut back to accommodate this and the north end of the platform extended.

On the Cathcart Circle the next station to the west is Langside and to the north is Mount Florida. On the Neilston line the next station is Muirend to the west and on the Newton line the next station is Kings Park.
