Bellahouston railway station was a railway station serving the Bellahouston area of Glasgow, Scotland. The station was originally part of the G&SWR Paisley Canal Branch.

History[edit]

The station opened on 1 July 1885[1] and was closed to regular passenger traffic from 1 January 1917[2] although remaining open for workmens' traffic. It had fully reopened by mid-1920[1] and was closed to passengers by the British Transport Commission on 20 September 1954.[2]

Today, part of the line is still operating as the Paisley Canal Line; and a new railway station, Dumbreck, was opened near to the site of Bellahouston station on 28 July 1990.[3]
