History

The station was opened on 10 August 1896 by the Glasgow Central Railway which was subsequently absorbed by the Caledonian Railway. It later became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Transport Commission on 3 August 1959.

The original building was demolished in 1968 as, like many other ornate and historical buildings in the area, it lay in the path of the M8 motorway. The station, reopened as part of the Argyle Line project on 5 November 1979 by the British Railways Board and Strathclyde PTE and retains some of the original architecture at platform level.

When Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by ScotRail under arrangement with the PTE until the Privatisation of British Rail.

Ticket barriers came into operation on 22 June 2011.
