Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.

Opened on the Paisley and Renfrew Railway.


This was a private halt which was only short lived as a public station. It was a timber platform halt. The platform was on the west side of the line, just south of Wright Street.

The halt was provided for and alongside Ogston and Tennant's Renfrew Mill, the line running just to the east with sidings approaching the mill from the south.

The line had been singled (southbound line lifted) by the time the halt opened. In photographs it looks like a double track because the second track was a headshunt for works to the north (Babcox And Wilcox Boiler Works), where the line re-doubled.

To the south sidings radiated out from Sandyford Signal Box (1911-1936).

The trackbed southwards was converted into a footpath after track lifting around 1986. The footpath is no longer in use.
