IBM Railway Station

A halt on the Inverclyde Line, IBM Station is located within the Spango Valley, 2 miles (3 km) south of Gourock, and opened in 1978 to service the IBM computer plant which lay adjacent. It comprises one platform serving a single-track line. It is preceded by Inverkip Railway Station, 2½ miles (4 km) to the southwest, and followed by Branchton, 1¼ miles (2 km) to the northeast. Operated by ScotRail, IBM Station is unstaffed. The closure of the IBM factory and call centre, together with an inability to re-develop the site has brought a remarkable drop in the use of this station, from 145,664 passengers per annum in 2010 to just 22,016 passengers in 2016.
