Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.


This was a two platform station. In 1897 it was replaced by Dalmuir on the west side of Duntocher Road when the Glasgow, Yoker and Clydebank Railway was extended by the North British Railway from Clydebank Junction west to Dalmuir Park Junction.

The station site was fairly cramped. There was a goods yard at the east end. A loop was maintained here, even after electrification, but taken up with the Yoker Resignalling Scheme.

A signal box 'Dalmuir Station' was opened in 1894 at the east end of the goods yard, on the south side of the line (just east of where the Clydebank line later passed underneath). The box closed in 1940.
