Description

This was a two platform station with waiting rooms on the platforms and a booking office on Kilbowie Road to the east.

To enable expansion of the Singer Works the route of the former Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway was closed and the Singer Deviation (North British Railway) opened further north with the new Singer station.

The works was immediately to the south of the station and was served both by the station and Kilbowie Road, on the original alignment, which became a private multi platform terminus.
