Greenock and Ayrshire Railway

Introduction

This railway is closed. A short portion remains, out of use, to give access to the Greenock Containerbase (formerly Greenock Princes Pier [2nd]).

The line was the Glasgow and South Western Railway^s answer to the Caledonian Railway^s line from Glasgow to Greenock, which remains open today.

But it was more than that, it could also be approached from Ayrshire.

It was an express line, well engineered but crossing high ground. As a result powerful locomotives were required to cover the distance from Glasgow to Greenock in a similar time to the Caledonian.

The Greenock terminus was located on a pier from which steamers run to various Clyde destinations, a step up from the contemporary Caledonian route which terminated near, but not at, a pier. The latter company completed its line to Gourock Pier to improve its position, leading the G&SWR to rebuilt and improve its terminus.

After 1923 both routes were owned by the same company, the LMS. For the last days of the line as a through route it carried boat trains over a single track route (an echo of the Caledonian^s line to Ardrossan). Unfortunately the high ground made the line more expensive to operate than the former Caledonian line. Not only this but its stations served a lower populated area.

Final approach to the Greenock pier was steeply graded and through tunnels. Runaways were not unknown.
