This long siding served the Croftengea Works. It was a branch of the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway leaving that line just east of Forth and Clyde Junction at Balloch.
As initially built there was a loop running as far as the loop on the F&CJR at the junction. This loop to the junction was lifted in later years.
