Location type


Name and dates

Crow Road (1896-1960)

Opened on the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway.


As was

This was an island platform station with a platform level and street level building on Clarence Drive above. A line ran from the east side of the station to a reversing spur to give access to Partickhill Goods [CR]. There were several parallel sidings in the 'V' of the junction of the connecting line, to the north and on the east side of the station. These were later used to store surplus carriages.

A signal box opened with the station, on the east side of the station by the connecting line junction.

The station closed to passengers in 1960 and the box and line closed in 1966.


Today only the south end of the island platform remains intact under the Clarence Drive overbridge. It is much overgrown and a large amount of rubble and material has been dumped on the trackbed.
