Opened on the Greenock and Ayrshire Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station above Greenock, to the north. The station had access from Drumfrochar Road to the east. The main station building was on the eastbound platform.

To the north was the large Lynedoch Goods station, accessed from Mearns Street Junction to the west, and to the south a small number of sidings, accessed from the east. These sidings later served the Tate and Lyle sugar refinery.

After closure of the railway in 1966 the line was relaid in 1971 to provide access to the Greenock Containerbase Sidings. The track was slewed between the platforms which remained intact.

The line fell out of use in 1985 and was closed in 1991.
