Mount Vernon railway station served the Mount Vernon area of Glasgow, Scotland on the Glasgow, Bothwell, Hamilton and Coatbridge Railway between Shettleston and Hamilton.

History[edit]

Mount Vernon was opened 1883[1] on the Glasgow, Bothwell, Hamilton and Coatbridge Railway.[2] It was closed as a wartime economy measure between 1917 and 1919.[1] Following nationalisation the station was renamed as Mount Vernon North to avoid confusion with the nearby Rutherglen and Coatbridge Railway station of the same name, although it had closed six years earlier. Mount Vernon North was closed three years later on 4 July 1955.[1] The line closed to freight traffic on 4 October 1964.[2]
