Mount Florida Railway Station


(Cnoc Florida)

A suburban railway station, the busiest on the Cathcart Circle Line in Glasgow City, Mount Florida (given the name Cnoc Florida in Gaelic) is situated a quarter-mile (0.5 km) northeast of Battlefield and a half-mile (1 km) north northeast of Cathcart. This station opened on the Cathcart District Railway in 1886 and comprises an island platform in a cutting. The original station building has been replaced. It is preceded (on the Circle) by Cathcart Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the south, and by King's Park Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the southeast, on the Newton Branch. Mount Florida is followed by Crosshill, a similar distance to the north northeast.

Now operated by ScotRail, Mount Florida Railway Station is staffed part-time and has seen an increase in passenger numbers from 1,011,238 per annum (2009-10) to 1,330,908 (2016-17). Services diverge here for the Newton Branch and for the return to Glasgow Central via the remainder of the Cathcart Circle. This is the nearest station to the National Stadium.
