History

Opened in 1993 under British Rail management during the Sectorisation era introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by ScotRail until the privatisation of British Rail came into effect on 1 April 1994. It was one of five new stations to be opened as part of the Maryhill Line project, with three of them (including this one) on new sites. The line through the station is however a lot older, being opened back in 1858 by the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway and has been used since the latter end of the 19th century by West Highland Line passenger & freight trains to reach the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway main line at Cowlairs and hence Queen Street High Level.

Services

Monday to Saturdays there is a half-hourly service eastbound to Glasgow Queen Street and westbound to Anniesland, where connections are available for North Clyde Line services.

Since 18 May 2014, a limited hourly Sunday service now operates on this line - trains call between 09:30 and 19:00.
