Possil North (1954-1964)
Opened on the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway.
This station is closed but the street level station building and the former goods shed both remain standing.
The street level building, which survived in other uses for many years is abandoned and is in poor condition but deserves preservation.
The station had two through platforms and a bay platform. It operated as a terminus for passenger trains but goods and minerals passed through between the east end of Glasgow and docks and shipyards on the north bank of the River Clyde to the west. There was a goods yard on the south side of the line. Both the bay platform and the goods yard were approached from the west.
Traces of the platforms remained in the 1980s and may still remain buried. Platform level buildings and the staircases to the platforms have not survived.
The line to the west is largely landscaped but to the east the cutting continues largely intact as far as Possil Junction and almost as far as the bridge over the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway at Eastfield TMD.
Before the railway, an ironstone waggonway ran here along a similar course between the Forth and Clyde Canal and Eastfield. Possil and Eastfield Ironstone Pits (Forth and Clyde Canal).
