Station


Name and dates

Lyoncross (1905-1905)

Opened on the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway.


Description

This was to be a station with an island platform. To the immediate west the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway was met by the Paisley and Barrhead District Railway at Lyoncross Junction.

The station was not opened but the two tracks are widely separated, even today, where the platform was to be.

In addition to the running lines there was a loop on the north side of the planned platform and a siding on the south side, approached from the junction. Lyoncross Junction signal box was at the west end of the never completed island platform.

The station, which would have been an interchange netween the two lines, probably never opened due to its rural location and because the Paisley and Barrhead District Railway never opened to passengers.

The station site was to have been east of the Aurs Road bridge.

The line remains open as a double track electrified railway from Glasgow to Neilston.
