Hyndland Railway Station

(Fearann na h-Èilde)

Hyndland Railway Station (known in Gaelic Fearann na h-Èilde) lies on physical infrastructure which is shared by the Argyle Line and the North Clyde Line in Glasgow, between Broomhill and Hyndland, ¾ mile (1.2 km) northeast of Whiteinch. This station was opened in 1960 by British Railways as part of their modernisation programme of the North Clyde lines, which included electrification, replacing an earlier Hyndland Station, located a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the east, which was the end of a short branch from the former Stobcross Railway. The site of this former station is now Old Station Park, on Hyndland Road.

Hyndland Railway Station comprises an island platform accessed by a modern pedestrian overbridge, with lifts for disabled access, which was installed in 2011. There is also a through line for non-stop trains. Now operated by ScotRail, Hyndland Station is staffed part-time and was used by 1,325,456 passengers in the year 2009-10, a figure that had grown to 1,767,112 in 2016-17. It is preceded by Partick Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the south southeast, and followed by Jordanhill, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the west northwest. Gartnavel Royal Hospital is located immediately to the north.
