This was a two platform station building just to the north east of Garnqueen North Junction where the line north divides for Glasgow and Coatbridge. To the immediate north was the Star Fireclay Works and the village is to the west of the station^s site.
The station opened in 1879, giving Glasgow bound passengers a choice of Buchanan Street or the new Glasgow Central.
The main station building was on the southbound platform, but both platforms had sizeable buildings. The junction signal box was at the south end of the northbound platform.
The goods yards was a single siding at the rear of the northbound platform at its north end. This siding was from the lines for the Star Fireclay Works which connected to the northbound line north of the station.
The station closed in 1956 and the buildings and platforms cleared.
