Kelvindale Railway Station


(Dail Cheilbhinn)

A modern halt on what is now designated as the Maryhill Line in NW Glasgow, Kelvindale Railway Station (known in Gaelic as Dail Cheilbhinn) lies between the suburb of Kelvindale and Dawsholm Park, immediately to the north of the Forth and Clyde Canal. This station opened in 2005 on what was the Stobcross Line, opened in 1874 by the North British Railway to route goods traffic between Maryhill and the Queen's Dock, now the site of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. The line continued in use until 1980 but was lifted a few years later, and then relaid to simplify routing as the Glasgow suburban rail network expanded. The station comprises a solitary platform, with utilitarian passenger shelters and an access ramp, all situated in a shallow cutting serving the single-track section between Knightswood South Junction and Stobcross Junction. Now operated by ScotRail, Kelvindale Railway Station is unstaffed and is used by 65,938 passengers per annum (2016-17), a substantial drop over previous years. It is preceded by Maryhill Railway Station, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the northeast, and followed by Anniesland, a half-mile (1 km) to the west southwest.
