Queen's Park railway station is a railway station serving the Queen's Park area of Glasgow, Scotland. It is located on the Cathcart Circle Line. Services are provided by Abellio ScotRail on behalf of Strathclyde Partnership for Transport.
|This section requires expansion. (December 2008)|
Queen's Park station opened with the first section of the Cathcart District Railway, which opened as far as Mount Florida on 1 March 1886 (the line through to the first Cathcart station opened a few months later, on 25 May 1886). The station maintains its original island platform and station building to this day.
The lines through the station were electrified under British Railways as part of the Glasgow South Bank Electrification in May 1962.
From July to August 2008, the Cathcart Circle was closed for a short period to allow for subsidence repair works near Pollokshields East railway station. During this closure, Queen's Park was, along with several other stations on the line, one of the first to receive the new Abellio ScotRail colours and signage that would replace Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and the incumbent franchise holder's branding. Abellio ScotRail is owned by Nederlandse Spoorwegen the national railway company of the Netherlands.
Service provision consisted of two trains per hour between Neilston and Glasgow Central, two trains per hours between Newton and Glasgow Central, two trains per hour serving the Cathcart Inner Circle and two trains per hour serving the Cathcart Outer Circle Service.
