Name and dates

Upper Greenock (1865-1967)

Opened on the Greenock and Wemyss Bay Railway.


Description

At closure this was an island platform station with a canopied station building. Sidings for the Berryards Sugar Refinery were to the north, with Berryards Junction off to the east. The Upper Greenock Goods was off to the west, also north of the line. Access to the island platform was by subway from Lynedoch Street. There was a signal box at either end of the station.

The original station was a single platform, before the line was doubled, on the south side of the line opposite the refinery sidings. (To convert this station into an island it was expanded to the south, the bridge over Lynedoch Street expanded and an extra line added to the south). Access to the original station was by passing south under the railway at Lynedoch Street. There was a small station building.

The fine castellated subway entrance remains intact, now bricked up, little else remains of the station. The line on the north side of the former platform remains in use.
