Langside Railway Station


(An Leathad Fada)

Langside Railway Station (known as An Leathad Fada in Gaelic) lies on the Cathcart Circle Line, between Newlands and Cathcart, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) south southwest of Langside in Glasgow City. This station opened in 1894 on the western extension of the Cathcart District Railway, which formed the loop back to Glasgow Central. The station comprises a simple modern passenger shelter on an island platform, which is accessed by an underpass. Operated by ScotRail, Langside Railway Station is unstaffed and has seen a steady increase in passengers from 186,814 per annum (2009-10) to 268,682 (2016-17). It is preceded by Cathcart Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the east southeast, and followed by Pollokshaws East, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the northwest.
