Burnside railway station serves the Burnside and Blairbeth areas of the Royal Burgh of Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, Greater Glasgow, Scotland. The station is managed by First ScotRail and is located on the Newton branch of the Cathcart Circle Lines. This is the busiest railway station on the Newton branch.

History[edit]

The station was opened by the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway on 1 August 1904.[1]

Facilities[edit]

Access to this station is by one of two railway bridges and as a result there is no disabled access to trains from here. A single waiting room serves both platforms. The ticket office is only open on Mondays to Saturdays. Customer information screens are also available at this station. A help point is available, like on every other First ScotRail station in Glasgow. Automatic announcements have recently been fitted at this station as well as all the stations on the Cathcart Circle.
