Description

This was a two platform station opened with the major expansion of the St Rollox Works. It was located in a cutting to the north of the works.

There were buildings on each platform, the larger on the eastbound. Ramps ran down to the platforms from Springburn Road, west of the station, under which the line passed in a short tunnel.

Directly to the north was Sighthill Goods and to the south the St Rollox Works. The station was very much hemmed in.

After closure the cutting was infilled. A footpath now runs along the former trackbed, obviously at a higher level.
