Blantyre Railway Station


(Blantaidhr)

A railway station on the Hamilton Circle Line, which is part of the Argyle Line suburban rail network in the Glasgow Conurbation, Blantyre (Gael: Blantaidhr) lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) south of Low Blantyre and a similar distance north of Stonefield in South Lanarkshire. Built on the Hamilton Branch of the Clydesdale Junction Railway, which was owned by Caledonian Railway, this station opened in 1849. The station comprises two platforms, linked by an overbridge. The original buildings were replaced in the 1970s with a modern structure. Now operated by ScotRail, Blantyre Railway Station is staffed part-time and was used by 567,570 passengers per annum (2016-17), a notable increase from 459,820 in 2009-10. It is preceded by Hamilton West Railway Station, 2 miles (3 km) to the southeast, and followed by Newton, 2½ miles (4 km) to the northwest.
