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

Opened on the Stobcross Railway.


This large goods yard was one of the termini, with Kelvinhaugh Goods located to the west, of the Stobcross Railway opened in 1874. The goods yard was located at a higher level than Stobcross Goods Low Level, immediately to the south and the Queens Dock beyond. The yard was accessed from the west, from Stobcross Junction and, due to its size, Kelvinhaugh Junction.

This was an important yard serving the west of the Glasgow city centre. It was a large goods and minerals yard with loading banks, travelling cranes and a goods shed.

The yard came to be jointly owned with the Caledonian Railway.

Below was the Stobcross Depot Tunnel of the Glasgow Central Railway and Kelvinhaugh Tunnel.

The site is now housing and an industrial estate to the west of Minerva Street.
