Description

This was a two platform station. To the south were two goods lines, and a yard. To the east was Parkhead Shed and Parkhead Junction [NB].

To the west two bridges crossed Duke Street - the north bridge carrying two passenger lines, the south bridge carrying two goods lines. The sizeable Parkhead Forge was to the south, served by the line.

West of the station the line was crossed by a long viaduct of the The Switchback (Caledonian Railway) which also crossed Duke Street. That line also served the forge approaching from Parkhead Junction [CR] to the south. The bridge was removed after closure of the former Caledonian line.
