Junction


Name and dates

Dalmuir Park Junction (1897-)

Opened on the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway.

Opened on the Clydebank to Dalmuir (North British Railway).


Description

This became a junction in 1897 when the former Glasgow, Yoker and Clydebank Railway was extended west from Clydebank Junction west to Dalmuir.

Dalmuir [1st] station was relocated west over Duntocher Road to Dalmuir, a new four platform station, at the time.

There was a loop on the down line, ie the south side, of the junction, allowing Dalmuir to act as a terminus. This later became a dead end siding and remains today. The signal box here was type commonly used in Dumbartonshire, this being the last example when it closed in 1989.
