Name and dates

Gallowgate (1870-1902)

Opened on the City of Glasgow Union Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station on a raised section of line. The line remains open.

The station opened in 1870 as a terminus for the Glasgow and Coatbridge Railway while the College [1st] terminus station was completed.

The southern platform, for trains running towards Saltmarket Junction, was removed to allow a reversing spur to be laid for the sidings opposite College Goods. To facilitate this an additional bridge was put across Bell Street, on the south side of the existing bridge, to carry the line.
