Description

This was originally a double track station. The original station featured a very tall wooden signal box on stilts.

When the line to Glasgow was quadrupled this was managed by adding an extra two tracks to the north through the station, today the Greenock platforms. This relocated the junction from the west to the east end of the station.

The goods yard, accessed by reversal from the Ayr line and on the south side, west end of the station, is now a car park.

Local

Paisley Abbey is south of the station.
