This was a four platform station. There were two through platforms and, on either side, two bay platforms for terminating services via Glasgow Central. These bays had carriage sidings alongside. Platforms were canopied. The majority of passenger trains terminated here, however the through lines were for passenger trains to Possil and goods and mineral trains running from Balornock Junction.
There was a large goods yard to the south.
The line rose going east from the station and banking was sometimes required as far as Springburn Goods.
The station site was cleared and is now a shopping centre and car park. Space for a single track line under this was left, a portal at the west end giving access.
To the west was Maryhill Junction.
