Description

This was an island platform station with a building typical of the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway. The line was on a raised embankment.

To the east, on the south side of the line, were sidings for Yoker Power Station which were expanded over the years.

The west end of the station crossed Green Road on a bridge. The east end of the station was built on a bridge over the Rothesay Dock Branch (North British Railway and Caledonian Railway) with Green Road Signal Box to the west where the lines fanned out into the yard serving the dock and Clydebank Dock West Junction to the east where the line from Scotstoun West Junction (the Caledonian Railway connection) met the line from Clydebank Dock East Junction (the North British Railway connection.

The station was later known as Yoker Ferry for Renfrew.
