Prestwick Town Railway Station


(Baile Phreastabhaig)

One of two railway stations in Prestwick in South Ayrshire, Prestwick Town (Gael: Baile Phreastabhaig) lies on the Ayrshire Coast Line and the Glasgow South Western Line, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) northwest of the town centre. This station opened on the Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway in 1839. It comprises two platforms connected by a traditional overbridge, together with neat station buildings featuring an overhanging canopy on the southbound platform. Now operated by ScotRail, Prestwick Town Station is staffed part-time and was used by 420,788 passengers in 2016-17, a number which has risen from 288,190 per annum in 2009-10. It is preceded by Newton-on-Ayr, 2 miles (3 km) south southwest, and followed by Prestwick International Airport Railway Station, 2¾ miles (4.5 km) to the north northwest.
