Name and dates

Maryhill Goods

Opened on the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway.

Description

This goods yard was to the east of Maryhill station, on the south side of line. It was served from a goods loop, a pair of looped lines west to the west on south side of main line. The goods yard sidings were approached from east.

The yard replaced small goods yard at Maryhill station.

Maryhill East Junction was to the north - the branch had no access to the loops or goods yard. To the east was the siding for Garscube Colliery. A train leaving the colliery heading west could enter the yard or, more particularly, the loops alongside the yard.
