Dalmuir Park Junction (1897-)
Opened on the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway.
Opened on the Clydebank to Dalmuir (North British Railway).
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.
The junction was originally called Dalmuir Junction.
