Name and dates

Nitshill (1848-)

Opened on the Glasgow, Barrhead and Neilston Direct Railway.

Open on the G and SW Main Line.


This is a two platform station with a lattice footbridge. The platforms are slightly staggered.

To the east is a substantial masonry bridge where the railway crosses over Nitshill Road at an angle. The bridge is not aligned with the railway but with the road and as a result it is almost a tunnel.

A branch formerly ran north east to the Victoria Pit.

The line between Glasgow Central and Barrhead is supported and promoted by the South West Glasgow Community Rail Partnership .
