History

The original station at Camelon, opened in 1850 and closed on 4 September 1967, was located about 250 yds east of the present station. It was called Camelon from its opening until 1903 when it was renamed Falkirk (Camelon) until its closure. The old station was a simple island platform with a ticket office and waiting room; access was from under the station via a set of stairs that led from a roadbridge.

The modern station has all the trappings of a 21st-century station, with both platforms accessible by wheelchair users, extensive use of CCTV and help points. There is free parking owned by the local authority adjacent to the south platform. This serves the nearby leisure facilities.

Services

From Camelon, direct train services run to Glasgow (via Cumbernauld), Edinburgh and Dunblane, with a change required at Stirling for stations to Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness, change at Glasgow or Edinburgh for trains to the south of Scotland and to England.

Trains on the Edinburgh - Dunblane route run every half hour and those to Cumbernauld & Glasgow run hourly. There are no Glasgow trains on Sundays, whilst the Edinburgh to Dunblane route operates hourly each way.
