Name and dates

Mossend (1882-1962)

Opened on the Wishaw and Coltness Railway.

Description

Holytown [1st] station closed when this station, just to the north, opened with two platforms on the line south and east and a further two platforms on the west to north curve of the Mossend junctions.

The two platforms on the west to north line closed first, probably when the line from Milnwood Junction to these platforms opened in 1903. This provided a second approach to the Mossend Marshalling Yard from the south.

Little remains of the station today except the approach road from Main Street.
