Description

This was an island platform station on a raised embankment. The Whiteinch Tramway passed below. The station building was typical of the line. It competed with the North British Railway^s nearby Whiteinch Victoria Park which opened at the same time, 1896, on previously goods only branch.

The station^s signal box was on the south side of the line at the east end of the station. It opened with the station.

There was a goods yard to the south of the station on the Clydeside Tramway which was served from Scotstoun West to the east and Partick West to the east. There was no closer connection.

The signal box closed in 1951 and the station closed to passengers in 1964. The line remained open for goods as a single track line until 1980.

The Scotstoun Shipbuilding Yard was to the south]].
