Station

Name and dates

Glassford (1863-1945)

Opened on the Hamilton and Strathaven Railway.

Description

This station was a mile west of the village of Glassford. The station had a platform on the east (village) side of a single line.

There was a goods yard on the east side, approached from the north. There was a signal box (1891-1906) which was replaced by a ground frame, probably much more appropriately as there was no loop and little traffic.

The former station cottage survives to the west of the site which has been largely cleared. A road bridge which crossed the line remains intact. This bridge was built to accommodate two lines, but the line was not doubled.
