Description

This station is at the east end of a flying junction from Partick, leading to an unusual V shape.

The adaptation of the former layout of the lines here explains the shape.

A goods line ran down from the Stobcross Railway to the Queens Dock - this is now the westbound line. The westbound platform is the site of the former Stobcross Goods Low Level.

A double track line ran from Glasgow Central via Stobcross to Partick Central - this is now the single track eastbound track. The west end of this tunnel has been realigned to emerge onto the Stobcross Railway.

The original single storey street level building had a curved frontage. It has not survived.
