Description

The Bothwell [CR] branch started from this junction, immediately east of Fallside station. The signal box here was 'Bothwell Junction'. The first version of this was on the north side of junction. It was replaced in 1897 with a second box on the south side of the junction. This was when the Bothwell Park Brick Works opened. This was served by sidings on the north side of the main line, approached from the junction which was to the west.

The branch was originally double track but singled in 1929.

Bothwell [CR] closed to passengers in 1950.

The route of the branch has since been built over. The main line remains open.
