Name and dates

Craigendoran (1882-)

Opened on the Craigendoran Pier Deviation.

Open on the Glasgow to Helensburgh.


Description

The name Craigendoran comes from a farm which was located on the shore side of the original alignment.

This was a three platform station built on the deviation built through Craigendoran in 1882, later expanded to five.

Two platforms were on the double track deviation line, one platform was on Craigendoran Pier (see that entry for more details) and two further platforms were faces of an island on the 1894 West Highland Railway. A new replacement signal box opened with the new line.

To the west of the Craigendoran main two platforms were carriage sidings, located on the north side of the line, served from the east.

Of all five platforms, only the up platform of the original through station remains, the down line between Craigendoran Junction and Helensburgh Central being lifted in 1984. The British Railways building has been demolished, replaced with a large bus shelter.
