Description

This is a five platform station. There are two platforms on the Singer route and to the north two platforms on the Clydebank route and a bay to the north of those, served from the Clydebank direction.

To the west is Dalmuir Park Junction and to the east the Clydebank line burrows under the Singer line.

This station replaced Dalmuir [1st] which was to the immediate east on older the Singer line. It was moved west with the opening of the newer route via Clydebank to add the platforms alongside each other on both routes.

The bay platform was added with the Argyle Line opened.

Dalmuir House (1810-1929) was to the north of the station.

Local

Dalmuir Park itself is just to the north.
