Falkirk High Railway Station


(Bràighe na h-Eaglaise Brice)

A railway station on a steeply sloping site a half-mile (1 km) south southwest of the town centre, Falkirk High Station (Gael: Bràighe na h-Eaglaise Brice) is the oldest of Falkirk's three stations opening on the Edinburgh-Glasgow line in 1842. The others are Falkirk Grahamston Station and Camelon Station. A simple station, comprising just two platforms, Falkirk High is used by almost a million passengers per year (2012). It is operated by ScotRail and staffed part-time. It is preceded by Croy Railway Station, 10 miles (16 km) to the west southwest, and followed by Polmont, 3 miles (5 km) to the east. The line enters the Hallglen Railway Tunnel just to the east.
