Saracen Foundry (1869-1963)
Served by the Hamiltonhill Branch (Caledonian Railway).
The foundry was served by sidings from the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway, just the north, which approached from the west. These sidings met the line around the site of today's Possilpark and Parkhouse station.
In 1894 the Hamiltonhill Branch (Caledonian Railway) opened, crossing the Helensburgh railway. A link from this opened to the foundry in 1895, flying under the branch on a graded curve and connecting to the existing sidings. But due to a prior agreement with the North British Railway this had to be closed.
