Bridgeton Railway Station


(Baile na Drochaid)

A suburban railway station in Glasgow, Bridgeton Station (Gael: Baile na Drochaid) lies on the Argyle Line, in the centre of Bridgeton and 1½ miles (2.5 km) southeast of the city centre. It opened in 1895 on the Glasgow Central Railway. Preceded by Dalmarnock Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the south southeast, it is followed by Argyle Street, 1¼ miles (2 km) to the west northwest. The station closed in 1964 as part of the Beeching rationalisation but reopened in 1979, offering regular commuter services to Glasgow Central station. Now operated by ScotRail, Bridgeton Railway Station is staffed part-time and is used by 393,962 passengers per annum (2009-10).
