Elderslie

Location type

Station


Name and dates

Elderslie (1876-1966)

Opened on the Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway.


Description

This station opened after the Bridge of Weir branch and before the Paisley Canal line, initially with 2 platforms and later expanded to four around the time of the Kilbarchan Loop opening - thus providing a quadruple route from Dalry to St Enoch.

A large collection of sidings to the north of the station, which were originally approached from the east, were looped probably during the Second World War.

A WH Malcolm / DRS depot was established here on the north side of the line in recent years but has fallen out of use.
