Croy Railway Station


(Crothaidh)

Croy (Gael: Crothaidh) is a busy two-platform railway station on the Glasgow - Edinburgh and Glasgow-Stirling line, on the southern margin of the village and 2 miles (3 km) west northwest of the centre of Cumbernauld. The station opened with the Edinburgh-Glasgow line in 1842, although the original buildings were replaced c. 2003. Croy lies between Lenzie and Falkirk High stations, receiving a regular service from Glasgow Queen Street. It is used by more than 1.2 million passengers annually (2014). The station is a transport hub, with passengers changing from local to express rail services, regular bus services connecting with nearby towns and a park-and-ride. Located to the south of the station, the park-and-ride facility was opened by Scottish Transport Minister Keith Brown in 2011 and was the largest in the country, with space for more than 915 vehicles.
