Name and dates

Paisley St James (1883-)

Opened on the Glasgow, Paisley and Greenock Railway.

Open on the Inverclyde Lines.


This is a two platform station.

The Paisley and Barrhead District Railway was solely accessed, latterly, from St James Junction, just west of the station, which had a large goods yard. The small shed here may have opened in connection with it.

The yard was divided into a northern and southern portion, the southern being accessed by reversal from the northern. The yard closed around 1988 with the loss of Spillers and Armitage Shanks traffic.
