Names and dates

Neilston [2nd] (1871-1953)
Neilston Low (1953-1966)

Opened on the Glasgow and Kilmarnock Joint Railway.

Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.


This was a two platform station close to the Crofthead Mill. It was inconvenient for the Neilston village being at the foot of a hill and quite far north of it. The surviving Neilston station serves the village better.

The station replaced Neilston [1st], a terminus, just to the north east. It is often confused with this station which was also called Crofthead.
