This once large yard spans both sides of the railway at Mossend. Today the yard consists of loops on either side of the line with freight depots on the west side and a fenced Euroterminal depot on the east side.
The yard was first established by the Caledonian Railway on the former Wishaw and Coltness Railway. Expanded around 1903.
