Description

This was a spacious four platform station, two being terminal platforms on the north side and the main route being served by an island platform.

To the south was the Beardmore Naval Construction Yard and, later, Turners Asbestos Cement Works.

Some time after closure to passengers, in 1964, the sidings to the south became used by Arnott and Young [Dalmuir] for scrap wagons. The line, in use from a new 1973 connection from Clydebank Central Junction through to Chivas Bros Siding closed officially in 1993. The site of the station has now been cleared and partly built over, although the road overbridge to the west remains.
