Easterhouse railway station serves the Easterhouse area of Glasgow, Scotland. It was built by the North British Railway as part of their Coatbridge Branch and opened when the branch opened on 1 February 1871. The station is 5¾ miles (9 km) east of Glasgow Queen Street railway station on the North Clyde Line and is managed by First ScotRail.
From Easterhouse, trains are every 15 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytimes and half-hourly, evenings and Sundays, towards Glasgow Queen Street and beyond (Balloch/Helensburgh Central) westbound and towards Airdrie eastbound.

Following the opening of the line between Airdrie and Bathgate, the basic off-peak daytime service is:
The evening service is:
The Sunday service is:
- 2tph - Helensburgh Central to/from Edinburgh Waverley
- 2tph - Airdrie to/from Dalmuir (12 & 19 December 2010)
The current rolling stock operating the North Clyde Lines is Class 320s. However, during peak-times you could find a Class 318 or Class 334. From 2010, the Class 334s will operate the North Clyde Lines due to the Airdrie-Bathgate extension.
From the 1960s, both Class 311s and Class 303s operated the North Clyde Lines. During a fleet cascade it was common to find a Class 314, Class 311 or Class 303. During the 1990s the Class 320s were introduced to the North Clyde Lines. The Class 311s were then withdrawn and both Class 303s and 320s operated together until 2002 when the final Class 303 unit was withdrawn. The Class 334s then entered service. Initially, the units were set for the Ayrshire Lines but they operated the North Clyde lines during peak-hour times. The Class 320s now operate the North Clyde Line, and will do so until 2010, with the occasional visit from a Class 334 or Class 318.
