Overtown Waterloo (1880-1881)
Overtown [2nd] (1881-1942)
Opened on the Wishaw Deviation (Caledonian 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. It was north of Overtown [1st] which it replaced (both were open briefly, thus the suffix 'Waterloo' for this station which was located closer to Waterloo than Overtown.
The station was on the east side of Main Street. There were no goods facilities. There was a footbridge (probably removed in the 1930s) by the road bridge to the west, platform buildings and a street level building by the access to the westbound platform.
Nothing remains of the station today, although the former access to the westbound platform is now a railway access point.
