Name and dates

Cathcart North Junction (1904-)

Opened on the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway.

Opened on the Cathcart District Railway.


This junction is just south of Mount Florida station. Here the Cathcart District Railway of 1886 is met, on either side, by lines from the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway of 1904. Of the 1904 lines the south east bound line simply runs south and east to Cathcart East Junction, the northbound line burrows under the Cathcart District to reach Cathcart East. It passes under at a location which was once a road, realigned further west for the opening of the L&A.
